I am coming into a Solarwinds environment and trying to understand how everything fits together. We have our main poller, Orian DB, Netflow DB in one city and our secondary poller in another city. Our main poller was at 98% polling rate. I moved a group of firewalls to the other poller to even things out. I was approached by a team member that said the poller being used needs to be in the same network as the netflow db. I've tried to read over some documentation, but i cant find a source to prove or disprove them.
The NTA and the Pollers are separate entities, right? Cant i point my firewalls to our main poller for NTA and use our secondary poller to poll?
I don't know about the same network, but I do recall the FSDB box and the NPM box need to be in the same timezone.
