This is a great idea. I dont have that large of an environment, but I have network engineers that never remember to inform me when they bring interfaces up or down on core switches/routers.
sure would be nice if Solarwinds NPM could rescan nodes periodically and send out a report of interfaces which have come online but arent being monitored.
I have the same challenge with my servers. We did not check the interfaces on the initial discovery and now want to add the server interfaces for monitoring. It seems the only way to do this is to go to each server, list resourses, and check the interface for montiring.
Would like to know if anyone has a better method or if there is a better method on the way? Also a little curious why it is that on rediscovery Orion does not allow one an opportunity to check the (re)discovered device interfaces.
Appreciate any ideas!
I posed the questions when we were in Solarwinds training recently. The teacher said he would look into it and then he never did...
