Monitor IP interfaces

Hi There

We are slowly migrating from Nagios XI into Solarwinds HCO and Id like to talk about monitoring as we are drowning in Alerts at the moment.
I can work on our SNMP based monitoring, but one thing we did do in Nagios was monitor every IP interface at both ends of the link which we found very useful.
This was especially useful in a failure scenario as it gave us a clue where the issue might have started based on the first alert received.
How can I replicate this in HCO, I understand it would be alot of work but for our team it is something we want to do.|
So if I have a switch with 30 IP interfaces, how do I set up a ICMP monitor for each interface?


  • If I understand your question you want to tie together a link down condition and a specific SNMPTrap message to generate an alert? This is possible through using primary and secondary conditions in the alert trigger conditions. The primary section would be used to define the link down part of the alert and then the secondary section would do the matching for your SNMPTrap. Set up the Primary condition and then use the AND to add the additional condition for the SNMP part.

    Top part is the interface down part and bottom part is the SWQL query to match the SNMPTrap
