Setting node interfaces as 'unplugged' - what does it do to the back end?
We are trying to set up a custom query within SWQL studio where we can allow our end user support folks to ability to quickly reference port mapping back to our managed switches. The goal is to "see" the interface name. However, in our world, we typically only manage the up links to other managed nodes, and never end users. If we set the port to "managed" but unplugged, we can pull the details. We have an unlimited license, but my worry is would adding all of these interfaces to the tables and eventually mark them as unplugged, would that drive up the processing needs ? We have hundreds of thousands of ports if we went this route, and I don't want to break the tool just to get a name.
