    Explination of each of the Orion services.

    julrich

      I already know what most of these services do, but I (and I am sure many others) would like to know exactly what each of these services are responsible for doing in Orion.

            SolarWinds Alerting Engine
            Solarwinds Information Service
            SolarWinds Orion Job Engine
            SolarWinds Orion Job Scheduler
            SolarWinds NetFlow Service
            SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor
            SolarWinds Orion Information Service V1
            SolarWinds Orion Module Engine
            SolarWinds Syslog Service
            SolarWinds Trap Service

       

      Thanks in advance

          Which one do you not know and I can answer instead of answering the ones you already know :)

              I'm pretty sure I know what these ones do:
                    SolarWinds Alerting Engine
                    SolarWinds NetFlow Service
                    SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor
                    SolarWinds Syslog Service
                    SolarWinds Trap Service
              Not really sure exactly what these do:
                    SolarWinds Orion Job Engine
                    SolarWinds Orion Job Scheduler
                    SolarWinds Orion Module Engine
              And what is the difference between these two? They look like the same executable!      
                    Solarwinds Information Service
                    SolarWinds Orion Information Service V1

                  Just different version, depending on the modules and versions you have installed they may need an older version

                  Not really sure exactly what these do:
                        SolarWinds Orion Job Engine
                        SolarWinds Orion Job Scheduler
                        SolarWinds Orion Module Engine

                        SolarWinds Orion Job Engine handles the execution of the jobs.
                        SolarWinds Orion Job Scheduler manages the scheduling of jobs and when they run
                        SolarWinds Orion Module Engine is a host service for various module plugins and what we call their “business
                        layers”.  Instead of having an individual windows service for each module, we have one that hosts them.
