Multiple IP Address polling support for a single node

It is taken from a feature request from Questionario. By the way we need this badly.

Re: Feature Request: Multiple IPs per Node

Hi, right now I have several nodes double and triple for monitoring purposes.

One would be the standard Management VLAN IP, another for OSPF and another for a backup tunnel (which is constantly up)

now the management IP is reachable as long as one of these still work but I want to be notified if either of them goes down as well.

I dont need to get performance reports about each single IP but still get notifications if the IP on the node is unreachable!

So it would be a nice enhancement to simply add more "secondary" IPs to nodes without having to create another object (Its not about the licenses but about the manageability).

  • Actually this is a feature requested since 2010.... 8 years has passed!!

    REF:

    Nodes with multiple IP's best practice

    We are having similar issue as OP when trying to use APM to monitor SMTP on a Ironport appliance with multiple listeners.

    Can only add the monitor on the polling IP (which of course is not one of the listeners IP's that responds to SMTP messages...).

    Solutions per now is to add 2x9 (18) listener-adresses as separate Orion-objects.

    Our environment is a quite small environment, so this must be a nightmare for big DCs and big ISPs.
