Does anyone other than me think this to be a problem?
I would think, there would be a way to filter unmanaged node hardware health sensors that are in the 'undefined' mode, so that it doesnt clutter up true 'undefined' health sensors.
I think this should be considered a bug, as there should be no remnants of 'unmanaged' nodes at all.
Seems to only be for devices that were unmanaged after Heardware sensors were introduced.
Once any node is unmanaged its HWH objects are keeping the last successful status received from a real polling.
So if those HWH had the *Undefined* status before un-managing then they just keep the same status after.
More than likely, these HWH monitors were *Undefined* before un-managing of the root node.
I was aware of this default function, however, it is difficult for me to look at NPM as "Real TIme" Monitoring, if its cluttered with loose ends. Wouldnt a check on a regular basis to remove undefined monitored points for unmanaged devices make it more useful? This is the responsibility of the application writer.
BTW I have filtered the undefined HWH by filtering the entire unmanaged node from my customers view.
