SolarWinds NTA licensing and deployment

Licensing for SolarWinds NTA follows the license level of your SolarWinds NPM installation. For example, if you have an NPM license for SL250, your SolarWinds NTA license is also SL250.

When upgrading licenses, the license levels must match. For example, when you upgrade an NPM SL250 license to SL500, you must upgrade your SolarWinds NTA license to SL500.

The following SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer for SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor licenses are available:

  • SL100
  • SL250
  • SL500
  • SL2000
  • SLX

As your database size increases with the addition of more flow-enabled devices, consider first collecting NetFlow data on one or two interfaces for a period of time to understand the memory requirements of your installation. Then, add more interfaces to ensure that your database scales as needed.
