RADIUS User Experience Monitor

Assign this SAM application monitor template to a node to track how long it takes to perform basic user authentication using the Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) protocol.


The SolarWinds Platform can access the target RADIUS system.

The SolarWinds Platform server and target system support Password Authentication Protocol (PAP) authentication. If necessary, create a RADIUS policy on the SolarWinds Platform server.


Provide RADIUS credentials, including a secret key.
