While adding a network for monitoring, you are allowed to create a network discovery rule that lets you set up interface filters. Here, you are allowed to define the following parameters:
- Interface type
- Admin state (Up, Down, Testing)
- Operational state (Up, Down, Testing, Dormant, Unknown)
While the network/device is being discovered and added, the interfaces that comply with the network discovery rule will automatically be added for monitoring. You can create a new rule every time you add a network or device or select from any of the existing ones. This way, you can choose to monitor only the interfaces that are necessary and exclude others.
