Maintain the SolarWinds Platform database in the SolarWinds Platform

This topic applies to all SolarWinds Platform products.

All SolarWinds Platform products use a Microsoft SQL Server database to store SolarWinds Platform Web Console settings and collected network performance and configuration data.

There are two utilities that allow you to perform the most commonly required database tasks without having to access either the Microsoft SQL Server or its associated tools.

Database Manager

Add SQL servers to your Orion configuration, view database information, perform queries or edit database values. See View database details and data in the Database Manager.

Database Maintenance

Summarize, clean, and compact your SolarWinds Platform database. See Database maintenance in the SolarWinds Platform.
