The interface check if64 always displays the operational status ifOperStatus of the interface. Furthermore, it can be configured to fetch and display the admin status ifAdminStatus. For both states, there are configuration options to map them to monitoring states (eg. ifOperStatus=up --> OK, ifOperStatus=down --> CRIT).

However, before this werk, there was no option to assign a monitoring state to a combination of an operational and an admin state. With the additional configuration option introduced by this werk, you can for example configure that an interface which is down and admin down should be considered OK. Such a setting will only apply to interfaces matching the configured operational and the configured admin state. For example, an interface which is down but admin up would not be affected.
