Flow sources and CBQoS polling

This section provides procedures for adding and deleting flow sources and selecting CBQoS-enabled devices for monitoring.

If NPM is monitoring network devices that are configured to export flow data, and if automatic addition of flow sources is enabled in NTA Settings, NTA automatically detects and adds the flow sources under NetFlow Sources.

Access the Flow Sources Management page and select interfaces for NetFlow monitoring

  1. Click Settings > All Settings.
  2. Under Product Specific Settings, click NTA Settings.
  3. Click Flow Sources Management.
    This page provides a list of flow-enabled nodes and interfaces.

    If you do not see any NetFlow sources, confirm that the following is true for your configuration:

    • NetFlow devices must be configured to send NetFlow data to the NTA collector. Devices and interfaces must be managed by SolarWinds NPM before they can be recognized in SolarWinds NTA.
    • Confirm that the SolarWinds NetFlow Service starts in Windows Services.
  4. Use the Filters to find the devices to display.
  5. Use the Search function to filter the list further.
  6. Select nodes and interfaces for NetFlow monitoring.
  7. Click Store traffic.

Access the CBQoS Polling Management page and select interfaces for CBQoS monitoring

  1. Click Settings > All Settings.
  2. Under Product Specific Settings, click NTA Settings.
  3. Click CBQoS polling Management.

    This page provides a list of all nodes and interfaces in SolarWinds NPM.

    CBQoS-enabled devices must be configured to allow CBQoS polling. Devices and interfaces must be managed by SolarWinds NPM before they can be recognized in SolarWinds NTA.

  4. Use the Filters to find the devices to display.
  5. Use the Search function to filter the list further.
