How do I stop the auto-addition of new interfaces to an existing network device?
When new interfaces are added to a monitored network device, by default, the Network Module will auto-discover and add them to their corresponding network device, thus consuming your license. This auto-discovery occurs at predefined intervals and will be added based on the latest discoveries. These newly discovered interfaces will be added based on your interface filters but will remain in the active state.
To prevent the auto-addition, please navigate to:
Network > Settings > Global Configurations > select 'No' for the option 'Automatically rediscover network interfaces to include newly added interfaces for monitoring'.
