SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor

SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor

NPM on Laptop


Multi-vendor network monitoring software that scales and expands with the needs of your network

Network monitoring software designed to reduce network outages and improve performance

SolarWinds Network Performance Manager (NPM) enables you to quickly detect, diagnose, and resolve network performance problems and outages—before you start getting calls asking if the network is down.

NPM is the easiest product of its kind to deploy, use, and maintain, which means you can spend your time actually managing your network, not supporting your network management software. Plus, with one-hour, do-it-yourself deployment, you’ll be monitoring immediately, instead of filling out statements of work for more consultants.

“It’s really a Swiss army knife of monitoring. It helps us be more proactive in dealing with issues.”

Richard Bryant, Network Admin at VWHS


Multi-vendor network monitoring

Comprehensive fault monitoring and performance management for your network.

Reduce network outages and quickly detect, diagnose, and resolve multi-vendor network performance issues with affordable, easy-to-use network monitoring software.

NPM Dashboard Summary

Advanced alerting

Get to the root cause quicker with intelligent, dependency and topology-aware network alerts.

Reduce the flood of unnecessary network alerts. Create alerts based on simple or complex nested trigger conditions, defined parent/child dependencies, and network topology.

NPM Advanced Alerting

Critical path visualization with NetPath

Hop-by-hop analysis of cloud or on-prem applications or services.

Monitor critical business services on-prem or in the cloud with NetPath network path analysis. You can see changes along the path, identify service provider issues, and use historical views to review the path before a problem occurs.

PerfStack performance analysis dashboard

PerfStack™ cross-stack network data correlation.

Accelerate identification of root cause by dragging-and-dropping network performance metrics on a common timeline for immediate visual correlation across all your network data.

Complex device monitoring with Network Insights™

Visual representation of the health and performance of critical network gear.

Reduce visibility gaps into critical network switches, firewalls, and load balancers with Network Insight for Cisco Nexus, Cisco ASA, and F5 BIG-IP.

NPM Node Summary

Auto-generating intelligent maps

View contextual and graphical portrayals of an entity and its physical and logical relationships with auto-updating maps.

See relationships for routers, switches, interfaces, volumes, and groups, updated automatically without user intervention so you can maintain your network, not your network maps.

NAM Orion Intelligent Mapping

SDN monitoring with Cisco ACI support

Measure the health of the logical network in addition to the physical network with Cisco ACI support.

Monitor logical components of the SDN environment, including APICs, tenants, application profiles, endpoint groups, and physical entities directly from your network monitoring tool.


Wireless network monitoring and management

See performance metrics for autonomous access points, wireless controllers, and clients.

Easily identify dead zones and improve wireless coverage. With our network monitoring tool, you can access out-of-the-box wireless reports, including wireless availability and rogue access points.

NMP Wireless Summary

Network performance baselines

Dynamically calculate baseline thresholds from historical network performance data.

Configure alerts accurately by calculating dynamic baseline threshold data with our network performance monitoring software.

Drop disparate network monitoring tools and get comprehensive data in an integrated platform for greater visibility into monitoring network performance, all with flexible deployment and a lower TCO.

NAM Distributed

Optional Scalability Engines

Be able to monitor more elements, poll more frequently, or cover more locations.

Gain the ability to increase frequency of polling, easily monitor remote locations, or scale to up to 12,000 additional elements per additional polling engine.

NPM Orion Additional Polling Engine

Optional High Availability

Help ensure 24/7 availability for your Orion servers and pollers across subnets with Orion Platform High Availability (HA).

Protect your monitoring environment against O/S crashes, application failures, network connectivity problems, and database availability issues with SolarWinds High Availability.

Optional Enterprise Operations Console

Get a single consolidated command center of multiple SolarWinds servers with Enterprise Operations Console (EOC).

SolarWinds Enterprise Operations Console collects performance data from an installed base of multiple SolarWinds servers, and summarizes this data into a composite, centralized view.
