    Poller Type - Performance Impact

    ckendrick

      In adding devices via the SDK - I am curious if there are performance repercussions when adding unnecessary pollers to a node.

       

      In the example below, if the poll method was ICMP - would adding all six pollers impact the performance of SolarWinds?

       

      Here is the only information I could find on these pollers. Additional resources / information would be appreciated!

      # Status
      $poller["PollerType"]="N.Status.ICMP.Native";
      $pollerUri = New-SwisObject $swis -EntityType "Orion.Pollers" -Properties $poller
      # Response time
      $poller["PollerType"]="N.ResponseTime.ICMP.Native";
      $pollerUri = New-SwisObject $swis -EntityType "Orion.Pollers" -Properties $poller
      # Details
      $poller["PollerType"]="N.Details.SNMP.Generic";
      $pollerUri = New-SwisObject $swis -EntityType "Orion.Pollers" -Properties $poller
      # Uptime
      $poller["PollerType"]="N.Uptime.SNMP.Generic";
      $pollerUri = New-SwisObject $swis -EntityType "Orion.Pollers" -Properties $poller
      # CPU
      $poller["PollerType"]="N.Cpu.SNMP.CiscoGen3";
      $pollerUri = New-SwisObject $swis -EntityType "Orion.Pollers" -Properties $poller
      # Memory
