Temporarily suspend collecting statistics for pollers

When you assign a poller to nodes or interfaces, it starts collecting statistics on the selected elements. If you want to suspend data collection for a poller without deleting it, disable the poller.

  1. Click SolarWinds Orion > Network Performance Monitor and start the Universal Device Poller.
  2. In the All Defined Pollers pane, navigate to the poller you want to disable.
  3. To confirm that you have selected the appropriate poller, view the poller properties in the main Orion Universal Device Poller window.

  4. Select the poller, and click Edit Properties.
  5. Set Status to Disabled, and click Finish.

The poller will now still be available in the Universal Device Poller application, but will not collect any statistics.
