Monitor Network Interfaces Including the ifAdminStatus

Supported Agents SNMP
This check does the same is if64, but it additionally monitors the administrative status (ifAdminStatus) of the interface. This check has to be specifically activated using the rule "SNMP Interface check: Monitor ifAdminStatus (use 'if64adm' instead of 'if64')". Consult the manpage of if64 for further information.

Item

There are three allowed ways to specify an interface: its index {ifIndex}, its description {ifDescr} and its alias {ifAlias}.

Discovery

One service is created for each interface that fulfills configurable conditions (rule "Network interface and switch port discovery"). By default, these are interfaces which are currently found {up} and are of type 6, 32, 62, 117, 127, 128, 129, 180, 181, 182, 205 or 229. {Grouping:} In some situations, you do not want to monitor a single interface but a group of interfaces that together form a pool. This check supports such pools by defining groups. The data of all members is accumulated and put together in a single grouped interface service.
