DPAIM 2024.1 system requirements

Release date: February 6, 2024

SolarWinds strongly recommends that you install the SolarWinds Platform on a server that is neither public, nor internet-facing. To learn about best practices for configuring your SolarWinds Platform installation securely, see Secure Configuration for the SolarWinds Platform.

Use the DPA Integration Module (DPAIM) to display SolarWinds DPA data in the SolarWinds Platform.

DPAIM 2024.1 is installed with the SolarWinds Platform. To install any SolarWinds Platform product, use the SolarWinds Platform Installer. To view information from DPA in the SolarWinds Platform, set up DPAIM.

SolarWinds recommends that you install DPAIM and other SolarWinds Platform products on a different server than the DPA server.

SolarWinds does not recommend installing an additional polling engine on the DPA server.

While SolarWinds SAM and SolarWinds DPA can integrate without extra configuration, you can take steps to relate SolarWinds DPA database instances to SolarWinds SAM applications more easily. See Prepare SAM applications for integration for more information.

Port and browser requirements are listed below. For other requirements, see the SolarWinds Platform requirements.

Port requirements

In addition to the port requirements necessary for DPA and any other SolarWinds Platform products, integration requires the following ports.

SolarWinds does not recommend the use of HTTP (Port 80). Please use HTTPS (Port 443) to ensure that any web-related connections are secure.
