Calculate a baseline

Much of the raw data that SolarWinds SAM polls from nodes is provided initially as counter values. If you do not need statistics immediately, or if you do not want SolarWinds SAM to calculate a baseline at startup, disable baseline calculation at startup by setting the Baseline Calculation option on the SolarWinds Polling Settings view to False.

Baseline calculation requires significant data gathering and processing. Until baseline calculation is completed, both SolarWinds SAM server performance and the CPU performance of some of network routers may be adversely affected.
