Packet Analysis Sensor Licensing

By default, your SolarWinds Orion product includes one network sensor (NPAS) and ten server sensors (SPAS).

You can also purchase more Packet Analysis Sensors. The evaluation provides an unlimited number of network or server sensors so you can decide how many additional sensors you want. NPAS units are sold in any increment, and SPAS units are sold in multiples of 10. After you purchase additional Packet Analysis Sensors, you must activate them.

The QoE Evaluation license must be activated before you can activate the commercial license. There is no need to restart any services after entering commercial license keys.
