OpenVMS: Traffic of Network Interfaces
Distribution official part of Check_MK
License GPL
Supported Agents OpenVMS
This check monitors the ingoing and outgoing traffic of network interfaces on OpenVMS. Please refer to the manpage of if64 for documentation.

Item

There are three allowed ways to specify an interface: its index, which simply enumerates the interfaces starting from 1, its description and its alias. For this check, the description and the alias are the same.

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. For this check, these default conditions include all interfaces, since any interface discovered by this check is of type 6 and up. {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.
