Werk #1676: if.include: now able to detect grouped interfaces

Component Checks & agents
Title if.include: now able to detect grouped interfaces
Date Jan 27, 2015
Checkmk Edition Checkmk Raw (CRE)
Checkmk Version 1.2.7i1
Level Trivial Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

This feature is more developer oriented. There are no changes to any interface checks.

The inventory function in if.include can now automatically create interface groups. If an interface is in a group you can specify this group in the first field (ifIndex) of the line. Instead of a simple index, you now put a tuple of (ifGroup, ifIndex).

The inventory function detects if there are multiple interfaces in the same group and creates a virtual interface out of them. Grouped interfaces are no longer listed separately.
