  • Get Web Pages for Monitored Entities

    This is a two-pronged script. The first way you can run it is "as-is" which means it'll connect to your Orion server and pull back the URL for any and all managed entities.

  • Patching Machines (or Shut-up Alerts)

    Muting nodes (as opposed to Unmanaging them) offers a few benefits: It stops any alert actions from triggering regardless of detected changes It doesn't stop polling the device for information I really like this functionality because while I'm patching (during my change windows), I'd still like to poll for CPU/Memory/Application Status/etc. Some people might say I'm being overly cautious in choosing muting (called "Alert Suppression" in the API) instead of Unmanage, but I find it helpful...

    This script will see if any Out of the Box alerts are enabled, and will disable them. It doesn't make any backup or record of it (other than what is shown on the screen during execution), so please be sure you know what's going to happen.

  • Delete Unneeded Volumes

    I find when other people run the discovery wizard, they will import everything and I don't really care about that - specifically when I'm talking about Linux's additional "drives." These drives are almost always over the minimum capacity because they are used for memory operations. Specifically, it will delete any 'Cached memory' or 'Shared memory' volumes that are on Linux Machines. This script asks for your Orion Server, Username, and Password and then deletes all volumes matching the defined...
