Configure JSA to access your SolarWinds Orion appliance by using the SNMP protocol.

  1. Click the Admin tab.
  2. Clickthe Log Source icon, and then click Add.
  3. In the Log Source Name field, type a name for your SolarWinds Orion log source.
  4. From the Log Source Type list, select SolarWinds Orion..
  5. From the Protocol Configuration list, select SNMPv2 or SNMPv3.
  6. Optional: If you selected SNMPv2, configure the following specific log source parameters:

    Table 1: SNMPv2 Log Source Parameters

    Parameter

    Value

    Log Source Identifier

    Type the IP address or the host name of your SolarWinds Orion appliance to use as the identifier.

    Community

    Type the SNMP community name that was used when SNMP was configured on your SolarWinds Orion appliance.

    Include OIDs in Event Payload

    To allow the SolarWinds Orion event payloads to be constructed as name-value pairs instead of the standard event payload format, select the Include OIDs in Event Payload check box.

    Note: You must include OIDs in the event payload for processing SNMPv2 or SNMPv3 events for SolarWinds Orion

  7. Optional: If you selected SNMPv3, configure the following specific log source parameters:

    Parameter

    Value

    Log Source Identifier

    Type the IP address or the host name of your SolarWinds Orion appliance to use as the identifier.

    Authentication Protocol

    The algorithm that was used when SNMP was configured on your SolarWinds Orion appliance:

    • MD5 uses Message Digest 5 (MD5) as your authentication protocol.

    • SHA uses Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) as your authentication protocol.

    Authentication Password
