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).

  • ugh - I am torn on this one. Many of the IP's are detected by NPM (usually all), and interface alerts can accomodate what happens when one of those IP's goes thwack in the night. Load balanced, virtual IP's get interesting - as do cluster ip's, I dont see a simple method around monitoring those. Usually full monitoring on the clustered, and icmp on each node, with some magic SAM templates or NPM custom node pollers to detect status changes inside the cluster. I dont think this has a simple answer, I skimmed many of the older posts, and noticed several different vendors and technologies mentioned. SAM and NPM can deal with those, but it will take some time to develop or import those templates. emoticons_wink.png Thwack is a great resource for that.
