In other words, I want to exclude certain nodes.
you need to be more specific please...
I'm guessing you are talking perhaps "top 10" pages. i.e. top 10 errors and discards. This is typical for firewalls to show millions of discards...that's its job.
For that, you'd click edit (above the section/resource to filter), and enter your filter...it might look like this if your firewall names had "PIX" in them.
nodes.caption not like '*pix*'
You indicated you only want to see Brocade and Cisco vendor nodes...
Nodes.Vendor like '*Cisco*' or Nodes.Vendor like '*Brocade*'
They give you hints on the page as well...
Your example was much better than the ones given in Orion.
Thanks. It worked.
One more thing,
How would i write a filter to filter out any nodes with an interface status as "unplugged"?
assuming interface based resource...
Status<>10 or interfaces.status<>10
