Disable & Ignore?

Hey yall,

On the Device Settings… What is the Difference between Disable and Ignore?

thank you,


Disable stops all polling. (A little more nuanced than that)
Ignore disables alerts.

Disable technically hides the interfaces from the webui, disables alerting and discards all polled data (unless per-port polling is enabled, then it isn’t polled at all).

Got it thank you. I don’t see this anywhere in the Docs. I can add it just need to figure on what section.

Probably best as an FAQ.

Even better than updating the documentation or the FAQ, how about changing the wording on the interface to match the answer exactly-

Disable - Stop Polling
Ignore - Disable Alerts

PRs welcome :slight_smile:

The wording is still misleading, so that I have done a new PR and updated the doc
