I have setup about 150 ICMP only nodes. I am doing basic up/down monitoring for our Windows servers.
Most of them are working perfectly. I have list of about 20 that are trying to report on CPU and Memory utilization. I don't want this. Since the polling method is ICMP, I cannot "list resources". Its greyed out. I am racking my brain trying to resolve this. I want to send alert if the node is down and nothing else. Any ideas???
Any help would be appricated.
I am suspecting that all these nodes that you have attachment are added through VMAN (Virtualization Manager), these devices were managed from VMAN console and when you click on a host in VMAN (virtualization summary) console it would then ask if you did want to manage/add this device onto SolarWinds Orion and when you say yes you will have an option to select ICMP/SNMP/WMI as the polling method on your NPM/SAM.
The stats for these devices are being picked up by VMAN and not your NPM/SAM.
Click on one of the nodes that you have pasted in the attachment and you will see something similar on the node page
In the example that i have pasted my device name is 'DENWIN01mp' and it resides on 'lab-aus-nutx-03.lba.na', the stats are being pulled from VMAN module and not NPM/SAM (DENWIN01mp is added as an ICMP node on NPM/SAM) but other stats are pulled from VMAN polling.
Hope this helps.
