SRM Installation and Upgrade Guide

The SolarWinds Platform Storage Resource Monitor (SRM) offers easy-to-use, real-time storage visibility into your multi-vendor NAS and SAN arrays. Easily set up alerts and reports to monitor performance and capacity trends in your storage environment.

SRM is a SolarWinds Platform product, and it is thus installed using the SolarWinds Installer. To obtain the installer, download SRM, or any other products from the SolarWinds Customer Portal. The installer is included in the download.

SolarWinds strongly recommends that you install the SolarWinds Platform on a server that is neither public, nor internet-facing. To learn about best practices for configuring your SolarWinds Platform installation securely, see Secure Configuration for the SolarWinds Platform.
