Discovery for SolarWinds VNQM
For SolarWinds VNQM to monitor network performance and VoIP quality, you must discover those network devices and add them to Orion Platform for monitoring.
- If you completed the Network Performance Monitor Getting Started Guide, you may have already discovered your IP SLA-capable Cisco devices and call manager devices. There is no discovery specific to SolarWinds VNQM.
- If you have not discovered your Cisco or call manager devices, complete the discovery and import sections in the SolarWinds NPM Getting Started Guide, and then return to this guide to add those devices to SolarWinds VNQM.
SolarWinds recommends that you begin by discovering a limited number of routers and call manager nodes and then add more devices as you scale your environment.
