DPAIM integration overview

You can integrate any Orion Platform product with multiple instances of SolarWinds DPA. The DPA integration provides visibility into the performance metrics and suggested solutions that DPA provides. You cannot make changes to a database instance monitored by SolarWinds DPA from the SolarWinds Orion server.

  1. Check the Requirements for the DPA Integration Module.
  2. Install the DPA Integration Module on your SolarWinds Orion server:
    • DPAIM is automatically installed with SolarWinds SAM 6.2.1 and later. If you have SAM, continue with the next step.

      To install SAM, use the SolarWinds Orion Installer. DPAIM is automatically installed with SAM, but is not included in the list of products.

    • To install DPAIM without SAM:

      1. Log in to the Customer Portal and download the Database Performance Analyzer Integration Module installer.

        You must download the DPAIM installer to install DPAIM without SAM. DPAIM is not included in the list of products available in other product installers.

      2. Use the SolarWinds Orion Installer to install DPAIM. You can install DPAIM alone or with other Orion Platform products.

  3. Set up the DPA Integration Module.
  4. Establish relationships between databases, applications, and storage objects.
