Optimize performance in SolarWinds NTA

Due to the volume of data it collects and processes, SolarWinds NTA constantly makes demands on the resources of both the Orion server and its database.

Maintaining your Orion, SQL and NTA Flow Storage database servers on separate physical machines is a fundamental requirement in scaling the SolarWinds NTA implementation. However, even with this setup, the volume of collected and processed NetFlow data calls for other performance optimizing steps.

Follow the recommendations and steps in these sections to optimize performance of your SolarWinds NTA implementation. Due to differences in network environments, results of these optimizations will vary from installation to installation:
