Level Trivial Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Incompatible - Manual interaction might be required

Previously when monitoring network interfaces on Solaris and HP-UX you would have tree checks per Interface: For state, counters, and speed. These three have now been replaced by one new check simply named {Interface}. This uses the same implementation as all other interface checks in Check_MK now. This means that you can do configuration via WATO, have all features like averaging and predictive monitoring, interface grouping and much more.

Note: This is an incompatible change. You will have to redo service discovery on the machines using statgrab. The old services will then vanish. New ones will appear. As long as you do not do this, the existing checks will go to UNKNOWN.
