I discovered hundreds of routers/switches and I got thousands of Loopback and Null interfaces. Later I discovered the way to regex for bad_interfaces :), but currently I have a problem to solve: using queries on the DB I put those interfaces in disabled state and graphs are not being generated. My question is about polls: are disabled interfaces polled with the enabled ones? Is it the same if I delete those interfaces? I want to speed up polls but I don’t know if snmpbulkwalk cares aboute deleted or disabled interfaces.
Is there other way to NOT PULL(not list) those not-wanted interface besides using bad_interfaces?
I got a device that have only two physical interface but LibreNMS returns a total of 105 interfaces,taking the polling time to almost 35 sec.
I like how Cacti handle this, just manually pick which interface you want to monitor.
Some device’s bad interface might be other device’s good interface.
(I’m not familiar with how bad_interfaces works, so correct me if I’m wrong.)
