    SQL Reporting Services as a consolidated Orion report interface.

      We're looking at methods for presenting reports from NPM and SAM from multiple instances of SolarWinds in different regions.

      Candidate solutions being considered are SRS, using the EOC in some expanded capacity to present much of the requested data, and/or a dedicated web server using the SW API to request the data and present on demand.

       

      SRS seems to be a popular idea with our management because it could easily be configured to retrieve the report data, and the interface uses AD authentication and is highly customizable.

       

      Challenges are engineering the queries against an un-published schema, so this is where use of the SW API might be preferable.

       

      This is a high-profile business need in most shops that run multiple instances of Orion, so your input and opinions are welcomed.
