Werk #1429: Disabled snmp checktypes are now sorted out before Check_MK contacts the snmp host

Component Core & Setup
Title Disabled snmp checktypes are now sorted out before Check_MK contacts the snmp host
Date Oct 29, 2014
Checkmk Editon Checkmk Raw (CRE)
Checkmk Version 1.2.5i6
Level Prominent Change
Class Bug Fix
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

Behaviour in the previous version: If a snmp host should be inventorized it was checked with the full palette of all available snmp inventory functions. The filtering of unwanted checktypes was done afterwards. This caused needless snmp queries towards the snmp host.

The filtering of unwanted checktypes is now done before the snmp host is contacted.

Note: This only applies to the WATO rule Disabled checktypes respectively the parameters ignored_checktypes and ignored_checks, but not to Disabled services. The latter one matches to service descriptions which are the result of a successful inventory.
