We have paid for an additional Polling engine...great news my main polling engine gets into his running clothes to get ready for all that room to breathe and start going 100 miles an hour.
But wait sorry mate you are going to have to wait for the technicain to work out which nodes need to go where so he can balance the load manually. Wait...what????
Theres my rant why isnt there a recommendations for moving nodes from one polling engine to another.
Maybe a test option to see if the 1000 nodes on one polling engine will work on another?
Currently have main poller and additional, lots of modules but the main ones that are an issue is npm and sam
Main polling engine
additional polling engine
I know there both high and I need more but why doesnt the system say move these nodes that do not require sam from the main poller to the additonal poller?
I get that theres money involved and all that but genrally solarwinds is used by multiple different people who do not use Solarwinds as there main job It really should look after itself. Can the cost of adding this feature not be added to buying an additional engine.
Or maybe a report function as cant work out how to look in swql studio for something like nodes polled via wmi from the main poller that do not use sam. Im nearly there to be honest with the report.
Just feels like a missed part that would make solarwinds stand out from the rest.
