Need a select all feature per node (Network Sonar Discovery)

mdriskell

Unless I'm missing something there doesn't appear to be a select all within a specific node on the Network Sonar Discovery page to either import all or ignore all (interfaces, volumes)  

Here is what I am looking for.  I have a switch that has upwards of 300 interfaces.  I need about 280 of them ignored as they are user ports which we do not monitor.  For me to ignore these I have to individually click on each one and then go ignore (luckily I have already had my carpal tunnel surgeries).

Is there not a better way to do this?

    Mdriskell as you probably know. There isn't any way to do it. If there is you already figured it out somehow. That's funny! Are we the only ones with thinks that thats a problem? Others are ok to select 250 interfaces one by one every time?

    I'm a little confused where on the UI you're trying to do this.  Can you explain more?

    When you "List Resources" for a node you have the option of selecting All, None, All Active Interfaces, All Volumes, All Interfaces:

    Although it doesn't look like it, the green tick and text are buttons you can click.

    In your situation I think I'd select "None", then select the interfaces needed, then any other volumes or CPU/Memory options etc.

        Click on the Nodes Drop-down menu and change it over to interfaces. Next, type the name of the node into the search box to display only the interfaces on that device.

        You'll see a little checkbox in the column title - this will let you select all displayed interfaces at once, and you can then deselect the other interfaces from there.

          But It should be possible to select all the interfaces when I select the node.

      Andy,

      I'm referring specifically to the network sonar discovery not the individual node list resources page.  The problem is I have about 500 access switches and each of these has upwards to several hundred ports that I simply do not wish to monitor.  If I do not selectively ignore them I have to see them in my discovery results page and have to sort through to find the core switches (same model) for the interfaces I do care about.  Ignoring them prevents them from showing up on future discoveries which allows me to show only the devices I do care about.

        Hımm. Then I misunderstood you. Anyway this problem also exist in the node management. :)
