Location where SolarWinds Observability Agent and APM libraries are stored. The SolarWinds Observability Agent and some APM libraries may reach out to the following endpoints for updates.

Services entities

The issuer Certificate Authority (CA) for the SolarWinds APM collector's certificate must be considered trusted by the SSL/TLS configuration on the service's system.

Alternatively, use a proxy to forward connections to the SolarWinds APM collector. See Proxy configuration.

The following ports must also be opened for communication with the SolarWinds Observability collectors to report collected data. For network devices, see in SolarWinds Platform on-prem requirements for additional port requirements.

Default port Protocol Direction Description
161 UDP, TCP Outbound Port used by the Network Collector for sending and receiving SNMP data from network devices.
443 HTTPS Outbound Port used for communication with cloud endpoints.
6514 TCP, HTTPS, TLS Outbound Port used to send logs via syslog or HTTPS.
2055 UDP Inbound Port for receiving flows on the Network Collector. See NetFlow port requirements.
17777, 17778 TCP Inbound Special case: If the Network Collector and SolarWinds Observability Agent are installed on different servers, inbound rules for these ports are needed.
