Interfaces rediscovered every 5 minutes


on two identical Ubuntu Linux hosts acting as routers we see every 5 minutes the same messages:
“speed: ConnectX EN 10GigE, PCIe 2.0 5GT → ConnectX EN 10GigE, PCIe 2.0 5GT/s”

It’s filling up our eventlog and does that for every of our 10G Interfaces of that type!

I would be fine if I could somehow ignore just these messages but I don’t want to disable discovery on those hosts in general.

Maybe you have a hint.

Thank you,

This device is returning a string for ifSpeed?

Definitely complain to the vendor.

Pastebin the output of ./poller.php -h HOSTNAME -d -r -f -m ports

thank you for looking into it!

Ok so not what I expected :slight_smile:

This is because we are picking up [ConnectX EN 10GigE, PCIe 2.0 5GT/s] and parsing it:

If you don’t use it then you could set $config['port_descr_parser'] = "includes/custom/"; create that file and just have <?php in it

Great! That did the trick!
