Must Have Features of SolarWinds’ Enterprise Operations Console

  • ConnectNow Network Mapping

    ConnectNow Network Mapping.

    SolarWinds Enterprise Operations Console lets you drag and drop network devices to custom network maps and automatically view connections between devices and their real-time status.

    • Automatically discover and display connections between devices on your network maps
    • Create custom nested network maps remotely from your desktop quickly and easily, with drag and drop simplicity
    • View your network logically by floor, building, department, or geographic location and drill into more granular views

    SolarWinds Enterprise Operations Console’s built-in Network Atlas allows you to view your network pictorially and visually track performance statistics in real time via dynamic network maps. With ConnectNow technology, you can even automatically display the connections between network devices on your maps. Choose from several built-in geographic map templates or import a logical image of your own network based on floor, building, department, or larger geographic location. Multiple network maps can also be nested to provide drill-down capabilities.

    In seconds, you can drag and drop devices into their appropriate locations on the network map so that you can view the health of all network devices at a specific location. Then, simply click the ConnectNow button to automatically discover and display the connections between your devices. Plus, Network Atlas lets you create your network map locally on your desktop and then export the map to SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor where it is immediately updated with the current status of the added nodes.

    SolarWinds Enterprise Operations Console can also display specific network maps (and specific types of network information indicated on those maps) based on the viewer's authorization level or responsibility for particular regions of the network. For example, if a device fails within a particular subnet that a user is not authorized to access, then that user's map view will not go into alert condition, as the device is outside the scope of authorization.

Deployment

SolarWinds’ Orion-based servers can be deployed standalone or with multiple instances across a distributed network. Below, Figure 1 illustrates a configuration in which a single Orion-based server monitors a large corporate network, as well as a smaller branch network. This straightforward deployment approach uses a single SQL database. Monitoring scalability depends on database performance, which typically limits the number of monitored network elements to between 50,000 and 100,000, depending on the polling frequency and other factors. This deployment configuration is ideal when an organization and its IT staff are geographically centralized.


Fig. 1

When multiple Orion-based servers are used for management, SolarWinds Enterprise Operations Console can be leveraged as a command center console to aggregate the multiple instances, as shown in Figure 2. This configuration is ideal for enterprise-class organizations with geographically distributed networks or for a MSP (managed service provider) managing multiple networks.


Fig. 2

In this deployment, each Orion-based server monitors its local network and feeds aggregate information back to SolarWinds Enterprise Operations Console. The corporate office has an Orion-based server with a polling engine to extend its monitoring scalability. The East Coast and West Coast networks each use a single Orion-based server to monitor their local networks and minimize international WAN traffic back to the primary corporate network.

SolarWinds Enterprise Operations Console securely collects Orion-based server data directly from each of the regional SQL databases, including the local corporate office. WAN performance is not impacted because Orion-based servers poll network devices locally, and Enterprise Operations Console only periodically pulls updates from each Orion-based server database. This WAN-optimized architecture ensures that WAN traffic is minimized and that, even if the WAN link temporarily goes down, regional Orion-based servers will continue polling without disruption. Once the WAN link is restored, SolarWinds Enterprise Operations Console automatically reconnects to the Orion-based servers, ensuring you never lose important information about network health.
