Set flow direction in NTA

You can set flow direction either globally for all NTA widgets or manually for the current session.

  1. In the SolarWinds Platform Web Console, click Settings > All Settings.
  2. Under Product Specific Settings, click NTA Settings.
  3. Under Charting and Graphing Settings, use the Default Flow Direction settings to set the defaults for all NTA widgets placed in Summary, Node Detail, Interface Detail views.
  4. You call also set global Default Flow Direction for CBQoS widgets. The global default is applied only if both the view on which the CBQoS widget is placed and the CBQoS widget itself are using their default settings.
  5. Click Save.

    Manually adjusting flow direction on an NTA view overrides the global default for that view only.
