If a node has a remote polling engine assignment, the poller setting determines whether the SolarWinds SAM data is collected by the remote polling engine or by the SolarWinds Platform server. Changes to this setting take affect only after you restart the Module Engine.

Polling Engine Mode

Select Local-Only to force the SolarWinds Platform server to gather all SolarWinds SAM data.
Select Poller-Bound to allow remote polling engines to gather SolarWinds SAM data for the nodes assigned to them.
