Agent For Monitoring Solaris x86-64bit Operating Systems

Agent For Monitoring Solaris x86-64bit Operating Systems

There's already a Linux Agent in the works for SAM that addresses most of the limitations associated with Agentless monitoring of Solaris hosts. What about an Agent that addressed the same/similar limitations for the Solaris x86-64bit operating system?

We are trying to monitor Solaris servers but I hope that Solarwinds does not have any MIBS for it. Hence we are using Linux MIBS to monitor the same but the Physical memory utilization (PMU) does not give the expected results.

Example : If the PMU is 78% used in the server , solarwinds shows there is 78% free and 22% is used

if you are able to locate a more appropriate SNMP OID which reports a more accurate value, you can override the OID Orion uses to collect this value for your Solaris servers by following the steps outlined in the KB article below.

We failed the bid because solarwinds did not support agent for solaris.
