Some FSC devices report the operational status and type of the interfaces as a human readable string. As defined in the IF-MIB Check_MK expects the values ifOperStatus and ifType in SNMP syntax. The check plugin fsc_if64 was create just for converting these values. One side effect was that all needed OIDs were fetched two times:

  • for the fsc_if64 check plugin and
  • for the if64 check plugin as well.

Thus fsc_if64 is deprecated now and human readable strings for operational status and type are handled by if64 for ALL devices.
