Orion Server 2020.2 templates

  • The Orion Server 2020.2 - Additional Websites template assesses the status of Windows services related to SolarWinds Orion servers running Orion Platform 2020.2.
  • The Orion Server 2020.2 - Main Polling Engine template assesses the status of Windows services on the Main Polling Engine (which is usually the Orion server) in Orion Platform 2020.2.

  • There are 2 Process monitors within these templates - Process Monitor - SWJobEngineWorker2.exe & Process Monitor - SWJobEngineWorker2x64.  They give you the number of running copies, but you cannot alert on the number of running copies, Plus setting the thresholds is strange on these as the total %CPU and  % Memory thresholds go over 100% as these seem to be based on sum of % used - is this the case?  Should we be setting this over 100% as it seems to be counter intuitive.  Please can someone give me some pointers on setting these thresholds?
