List Resources for multiple nodes

List Resources for multiple nodes

  What I'd like to propose is that we are able to do a list resources for similar hardware at the same time, so that we can add a checkbox for a particular type of resource to be enabled across all of that hardware.

Example:

Say you are intending to do list resources for 8 Windows 2008 servers, or 8 Colubris controllers.

All windows servers can have physical memory/virtual memory, so why not be able to check that and have that enabled for all of the servers (and greyed out if not consistent)? Likewise with Topology/Wireless controller for Colubris. This would make things a lot easier with SNMP queries, as you can't really do this easily/properly with network sonar.

I see related ideas:

This matters even more with the latest UI changes.

It would be so handy, especially when you are working with voip nodes that list resources returns thousands of virtual interfaces.

that may be tricky, but I'm voting for it. I have not tried it lately, but it used to confuse older versions if you tried to list resources on more than 1 node at time.

I'm not sure it's completely different in a concept than sonar discovery - maybe even a logical extension of it.

I'm not sure what you mean by older versions being confused by that, List Resources is grayed out if more than one node is selected.  That's the way its been as long as I can remember.

this was done using different Tabs in the browser.

Right, and even if it's restricted to similar vendors or something would be fine. I would still consider that a benefit to not necessarily have to go through discovery.

Yes, editing multiple node resource lists would be great. I have hundreds of the same type of router and switch. We changed the interfaces we poll so I have to either delete them all and start with a network discovery over or edit their respective resources one by one...

bumping, it'd be nice to have this still.

2017 bump for a QOL feature.

2018 bump. Would love to have List Resources' groups for certain environments that needs different resources to be monitored.
