I'm looking into ways to mass add devices to a network monitoring software using scripts. It doesn't IpMonitor has any feature that would let me add devices to it with command line scripts or POST. Do Orion / NPM have any kind of support for this? or a way I could upload devices from a database / just without gui interaction, effectively giving me the same value? Thank you.
Hello jabuckley both ipMonitor and the Orion Platform suite of products support methods of adding devices without going through the standard GUI.
For ipMonitor we are working on updating and transitioning documentation to our Success Center - SolarWinds Worldwide, LLC. Help and Support - However, here is some information around the schema that might be able to help. http://support.ipmonitor.com/devdocs.aspx Others have used these methods as well, so hopefully some our community members can share their experiences and best practices.
The Orion Platform Products such as Network Performance Monitor also provide a SDK for these purposes. Here is some info to make it easy to begin your investigation.
