SolarWinds Alerting Masterclass Public Training Class

Attend the SolarWinds Alerting Masterclass and become a “power user” of the alerting functionality within SolarWinds Orion. Available as a 1-day class.

The SolarWinds Orion Management System is a highly cost effective and professional tool for monitoring network performance, troubleshooting and resolving network issues. Its built in discovery and monitoring tools, coupled with the web console front end and very flexible configuration options, enable the generation of huge amounts of valuable performance data. The key to successfully managing the network is filtering and prioritizing this performance data so that the right people see the right information at the right time and can take appropriate action in a timely manner.

This 1-day class takes an in depth look at the alerting and notification options provided by the Orion Management System within a dedicated training environment. Delegates have the opportunity to explore all aspects of alerting using the Orion Web Console.
