  • Hey folks, ex Loop1 CTO here, and ex SolarWinds staff member. My old account was nerfed because it ended up being an employee login so i lost all my connections. 

    Any updates on the SWO roadmap? I was directed here by a SolarWinds rep but it's a bit sparse. 

  • Any news on expanding 'Device View' support for more vendors/machine types? Looking through the current HCO demo, there's only a couple of devices which seem to support it (Cisco Catalyst 2960-48PST-L and Juniper EX2200-24T). I wouldn't want to see this feature die on the vine, as it's a really useful support tool for field engineers, providing helpful pre-visualisation of problem interface location prior to being on-site to resolve.

    Is there a current list of vendors/models which support this, for reference?
