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).

  • This is also required to do CheckPoint monitoring.  As the only way to get visibility into the contexts is to setup multiple nodes and specifying the 'context' info as part of snmp (also has the side effect of forcing me to add a lot of extra SNMP credentials).

    The only way I know to monitoring multiple devices with the same IP is have multiple polling engines.
