I notice ICMP traffic from our Orion NPM to our managed nodes that are set to use SNMP monitoring. I was told by support that Orion pings each node prior to connecting to each node via SNMP. If all nodes will respond to SNMP, then the ICMP is just extra traffic.
I would like this ICMP traffic to be removed or an option within the System Manager to disable ICMP traffic if nodes are managed with SNMP.
This is an open enhancement request we have in the system which I will add you to, which is basically a method to gather node availability data via SNMP as today we gather that only via ICMP
