Edit interface properties in NPM
- Log in to the Orion Web Console as an administrator.
- Click Settings > Manage Nodes.
- Locate the parent node of the interface you want to manage, and expand the parent node.
- Select the interface, and click Edit Properties.
- Make your changes:
Edit the interface name
Adjust the interface name.
- In interface names, aliases, or descriptions, use only the following recommended characters:
- Do not use
\ | : * ?, or angle brackets (
>). Angle brackets and any strings contained within angle brackets are removed during polling, as bracketed text may be incorrectly parsed as web markup tags.
a-z A-Z 0-9 space , . - _ ( ) /
To display the interface as unplugged rather than down, select Display Interface as Unplugged.
Designate bandwidth for the interface
Default transmit and receive bandwidths are 1000 Mb/s. If a device does not report its bandwidth, or the interface bandwidth is constrained by other network devices, specify a custom bandwidth that reflects the performance of the interface.
Select Custom Bandwidth, and provide values for Transmit and Receive Bandwidth, in Mb/s.
Change polling interval
Edit how often SolarWinds NPM polls the interface status and performance data.
Interface Status Polling is the interval in seconds between the status checks on the selected interface. By default, interface status is checked every 120 seconds.
Collect Statistics is the interval in minutes on which performance statistics for the interface are determined. By default, it is every 9 minutes.
Custom properties and dependencies
Customize alerting thresholds for the interface
You can customize thresholds whose reaching triggers alerts for individual interfaces. You can change alerting thresholds for the following metrics on the interface:
- Received /Transmit Interface Errors and Discards
- Receive/Transmit Interface Utilization
To customize a threshold, select Override Orion General Thresholds next to the metric, and provide values for Warning and Critical Thresholds.
- Click Submit.
The interface properties in SolarWinds NPM change according to your updates.
