I have installed SolarWinds Engineering Edition on a Windows 2003 Server. Seems to run just fine however when I am tracking servers bandwidth (Bandwidth Monitor - Average In/output) the data seems to drop off to zero data being tracked..... The servers I am monitoring are web servers and I am just looking for the bandwidth each server puts out. I could understand if each web server gets 250 kb of data for an hour then no traffic for another hour. But when I run a performance monitor or Bandwidth Gauge I can see each server actually receiving request for web pages. I would think since there are requests being made there should be traffic to monitor on for SolarWinds. Any ideas or pointers would be great. I am new to SolarWinds so thanks in advaced for any input.
Are you monitoring the server interface? Or a switch interface to the server? You may not have have the right MIB/OID for that particular server. I usually try and monitor the switch port, that takes some load away from the servers having to process the SNMP requests.
