    Solarwinds slow


      I am using Solarwinds NPM and SAM on the same server. When I access the console either on the machine or from another machine, access is extremely slow. Even navigating through each page there is roughly an 8 second delay. I have tried using firefox and IE. How can I pinpoint the issue thanks. Maybe its an underpowered server?

          Guess so, revisit the pre-requisites. Check your IIS, App pools and DB response. (I am sure you would have already looked into CPU/Mem utilization)

          Hope it helps

            Are you using http or https?

              I think we need to understand the load on the machine:

              • What is the monitoring load
                • How many devices
                • How many interfaces
                • How many volumes
                • How many UnDP monitors
                • How many SAM components
              • What is the hardware
                • CPU (sockets, cores, and speed)
                • RAM
              • what is the database situation
                • on the same server as NPM/SAM or different
                • CPU
                • RAM
                • Disk configuration (local, SSD, RAID1+0, etc)

                Have you separated the database out to a stand-alone server? If not, like the others have suggested, it is likely that your server is getting hammered.


                While you can run NPM & SAM together on the same server along with the database, I wouldn't recommend it, especially in an production environment.


                DISCLAIMER: If you have a monster server with a direct attached disk tray whose IOPS are only used for the database (with the OS and NPM/SAM installed on the local disks), then you might be OK, but experience tells me that this is is unlikely

                  Thanks, I've taken over this setup. The DB is on the same server, about 70 servers and 100 remote firewalls with info being pulled via snmp. Using http. Looks like I need to move DB to its own server

                      Polling interval can affect in a negative way also, perhaps the polling interval is too low, 60 seconds for apps in SAM for example can make a disaster if you have multiple templates.


                      baher You can increase the polling interval if its acceptable to decrease load in the server/db
