That does not cover it.
When i look at the Geo map, and a node is down, it only shows hostname or IP address.
I need a Node label to identify the node the way i see fit. For example, a customer name.
A simple node label can just do that.
That is a workaround, but not a actual solution. It’s just i simple function every other NMS has!
Is this something that will be availible in future versions or is it something never coming?
That way i can decide to choose wich solution we choose.
Why not use the ip or hostname to sysname feature?
Enable or disable the sysDescr output for a device.
$config['force_ip_to_sysname'] = false;
When using IP addresses as a hostname you can instead represent the devices on the WebUI by its SNMP sysName resulting in an easier to read overview of your network. This would apply on networks where you don’t have DNS records for most of your devices.
$config['force_hostname_to_sysname'] = false;
When using a dynamic DNS hostname or one that does not resolve, this option would allow you to make use of the SNMP sysName instead as the preferred reference to the device.
