If you want you DB to grow larger than 2GB you will have to purchase the full Orion app, this will allow SQL DB's and not restrict growth.
but we just bought this product. Will they refund or give us discount? otherwise this would be a complete waist of money.
If i open databse maintenance and choose to run the nightly maintenance the program just stays stuck on deleting all pollers whout aparant interface... and does not complete the database maintenance at all.
we are running less than 50 devices on network preformance monitor of which 90% of them are cisco switches, i cant see why this is not working properly
Maby i have not set this up correctly, here is my current settings
Run Nightly Database maintenance at 02:15am
Detailed stats will be summorized into hourly after 7 days
Hourly into daily after 19days
Daily data deleted after 365 days
Network events be deleted from database after 30 days
Default poll for nodes 120 sec
Default poll for int 120 sec
Default poll for volumes 120 sec
Redescover naode, int and volume every 30min
Default stats for nodes 120 sec
Default stats for int 120 sec
Default stats for volumes 120 sec
these are my settings
please can somone assist
One of the reason your DB has grown so quick is that your polling for stats every 2 minutes, NPM and Orion will only display 5 minute intervals and personally we poll for stats every 10 - 15 minutes dependant on the device and polling for volumes we do every 30 - 60 mintes.
Thanx for the feedback,
I have applied this to my system and will have a look to see how it performs
The Network Performance Monitor tool is intended as a real-time desktop-based tool, which is why is has a 2GB limit and an Access back end. You can archive the database for history, but it's probably not going to serve as a complete network monitoring tool except for very small networks.
If you want full-time monitoring with a SQL back end and a web site, we have Orion Network Performance Monitor, which is an enterprise-class tool. If you need less power than Orion, you can also look at ipMonitor.
