i would like to see a 64 bit version of the solarwinds products, This would allow the product to access and use more addressable memory within
the Servers i install the products on.
Oh no, I meant the Linux part, not the 64-bit part. And that's cause I'm a rabid anti-windows bigot.
So Just theorizing here, but have ran into countless issues that seem to come back to the lack of 64-bit processing in Solarwinds/Orion. The SDK API for example does not allow the transfer of a 4-byte…
How about a Linux based Appliance that allows you to add on features with unlock codes. 64 bit of course.
This is unfortunately misguided. 64-bit Native can (and almost always) does provide a significant performance improvement.
I don't envy the Orion/Solwarinds Team. I'm sure they have quite a task ahead of them. Not just in migrating to 64-bit, but the bugs and issues that will result due to the migration. But I honestly can't be happier that this will happen and am thankful for their commitment. What I really want and it doesn't seem to be posted anywhere is a target date/version.
Not to mention we have a server with 40 logical processors which causes problems for 32 bit apps running on 64bit OS. This is a known issue that first came out in 2008 server but still exists in 2012 server, though they did have a hotfix for 2008, not sure about 2012 still looking since that is what we run currently. You get the error listed in microsoft link below. So i agree, a push to 64 bit solarwinds products will be quite a task but i believe is necessary.
