Need help configuring Solarwinds to monitor remote locations

Posted on 2008-11-05

We have a Solarwinds server set up to monitor our network.  The network is distributed over multiple sites, with relatively low bandwidth between them.  Each site has its own server, routers and firewall.  We would like to set up a server at each site to monitor SNMP traffic, then have the Solarwinds server pull the information from those servers(we are trying to minimize the bandwidth needed for SNMP traffic).  How would we go about setting something like this up?  Thanks for your help!

    Solarwinds does have additional modules to scale the solution. Use an additional Polling Engine at each remote site, all reporting back to the central operations console.
