Cutting Down On Alerting Noise: Guest Post From Support

I’ve been with SolarWinds going on 8 years now, working with the Support Team, so it came as no surprise to me when I saw how many of you answered our poll last month that Alerts, specifically, filtering out the noise from the real issues, was your top priority problem to solve in the next 30 days.

So, with that in mind, I’ve put together three powerful tips that could help you to achieve this goal, and I’ll discuss some of the common alerting questions that we tend to get in Support along the way.

NPM has awesome alerting capability, and when coupled with some of the other Orion features, it’ll let you get really granular – so yes, you really can cut down on a lot of that noise!


Custom properties allow you to define any property you like that doesn’t already exist in Orion. The possibilities are endless here, and you can use multiple custom properties together to provide a high level of granularity. Not heard of custom properties before? Check out a video tutorial on them here.
