The SolarWinds integration periodically polls one or more SolarWinds Orion systems for alerts and sends them to Moogsoft Enterprise as events.

Refer to the SolarWinds Reference to see the integration's default properties. When you use the integrations UI, you can only configure the visible properties.

If you want to implement a more complex SolarWinds LAM with custom settings, see Configure the SolarWinds LAM.

See the SolarWinds Orion documentation for details on SolarWinds components.

Before You Begin

The SolarWinds integration has been validated with SolarWinds v11.5, 12.2, v12.3, and v2019.4. Before you start to set up your integration, ensure you have met the following requirements for each SolarWinds system:

  • You have a local SolarWinds Orion user account with Administrator access.

  • You have downloaded and installed Orion SDK on your SolarWinds installation.

  • You have the connection details for your SolarWinds Orion platform (hostname or IP address, username and password)

  • You have opened a port for SolarWinds to receive connections from Moogsoft Enterprise. You use this port to configure the Connector URL. The default is 17778.

Additionally, you can provide optional configuration details. See the SolarWinds Reference and LAM and Integration Reference for a description of all properties.

Configure the SolarWinds Integration

To configure the SolarWinds integration:

  1. Navigate to the Integrations tab.

  2. Click SolarWinds in the Monitoring section.

  3. Provide a unique integration name. You can use the default name or customize the name according to your needs.

  4. Provide connection details for your SolarWinds system.

Configure SolarWinds

You do not need to perform any integration-specific steps on your SolarWinds system.

After you configure the SolarWinds integration, it polls SolarWinds at regular intervals to collect event data (every 60 seconds by default).
