OpenVMS: Traffic of Network Interfaces
|Distribution:||official part of Check_MK|
This check monitors the ingoing and outgoing traffic of network interfaces on OpenVMS.
Please refer to the manpage of if64 for documentation.
There are three allowed ways to specify an interface: its index, which simply
enumerates the interfaces starting from 1, its description and its alias. For this
check, the description and the alias are the same.
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. For this check, these default
conditions include all interfaces, since any interface discovered by this check is
of type 6 and up.
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.
