In the past conflicting check plugins with services called "Interface " could lead to a "duplicate services" warning on the discovery page.

To avoid this issue in the future, an API is now provided:

If you add a new "Interface "- service, please add register the scan function by decorating it with the line @network_interface_scan_registry.register. The matching devices will then be automatically excluded from the generic if and if64 check plugins.
