pinging on non ICMP ports


We have a number of non-snmp devices that we would like to monitor with Orion. Some of these devices are limited to non standard TCP ports for ICMP such as 5000, 9090, 7015 etc. Is there a way of getting Orion to ping on these non-standard ports?

I suggested the same thing over a year ago, when we first deployed
Orion 5. Being able to monitor TCP & UDP services on devices would
greatly increase the marketing potential of this product.

We currently use Big Brother to monitor services on servers, and would
drop it in a second, if it was incorporated into Orion.
(I know, I know, BB is GNU software, but this means we could use
the Sun server it is running on for bigger & better things).

Actually, I am using Big Brother to monitor the Orion server
for connectivity and the HTTP service! How else will you know
when your monitoring server goes down

That's a shame. We were hoping to integrate the functions of 'ServersAlive!' into Solarwinds - this does allow what is on the face of it a simple feature.

The current version of Orion NPM does not offer this functionality. I'm not sure if it's on the roadmap or not...
