Undeleting an element (node/interface/volume etc.)

A few minutes ago I accidentally deleted my backbone switch (and all the interfaces of course). Since undeleting an element (node, interface etc.) is not possible (Except restoring SQL from backup) it means that I've lost all the interface statistics, node statistics (CPU, Memory, Availability) and atlas map drawing. And this is not my first time. This is a common issue for all of us. If NPM can remember an element for a specific period of time that would be great. I think It shouldn't be that hard to implement this.

PS; Please vote these ideas also if you like them of course. And I bet you do. emoticons_happy.png

  • Couldn't it be solved to have a "Recently Deleted" function in "All Settings"? From there one would select Nodes or Interfaces.

    The timing for keeping these "Items" would be no longer than a set time, similar to other "Keep data for n".  Even some e-mail providers allow for that so when we all delete something that we should not have been so zealous at cleaning, we could recover.

    Why not make this simple and then also have a set REPORT that tells us (daily, weekly, monthly) what has been deleted and then let the system do its job. After all, let's no lose sight of the fact that the automation is WHY we bought this in the first place!

    What say you?
