Delete collectors in SolarWinds NTA

If you have stale records in your database, for example if a poller breaks down, or if you replace a poller, the information about collectors may be inaccurate. Delete unused collectors.

If the NetFlow service is still running on the server, deleting the collector in this resource is temporary. In 15 minutes, the collector will be added again with the default port 2055. If you had more or non-default ports defined for the collector, you will need to adjust the default setting.

Delete a collector permanently

  1. Log in to the appropriate server.
  2. Uninstall SolarWinds NTA.
  3. Delete the collector in the NetFlow Collector Services resource.
