Brocade VDX Devices: Network Interfaces via Standard MIB Using 64-Bit Counters
|Distribution:||official part of Check_MK|
This check does exactly the same as if64 but retrieves ifName instead of ifDescr,
because ifDescr is not useful for Brocade VDX devices. Please refer to the if64 manpage
There are three allowed ways to specify an interface: its index ifIndex, its
description, which is taken from ifName, and its alias ifAlias.
One service is created for each interface that fulfills configurable conditions
(rule "Network interface and switch port discovery").
By default, these are interfaces which are currently found up and are of type 6, 32,
62, 117, 127, 128, 129, 180, 181, 182, 205 or 229.
Grouping: In some situations, you do not want to monitor a single
interface but a group of interfaces that together form a pool.
This check supports such pools by defining groups. The data of all members is
accumulated and put together in a single grouped interface service.
