Rename monitored ports


I'm currently monitoring some of our switches.  All is working fine but the names are very long.

e.g. xgiga-swx 2/1/1: XGigabit Ethernet (BCM56xxx vxgs-robo-5.6.7)

Is it possible to rename these to something a little shorter?

Re: Rename monitored ports

he there,

There is an option in the hostinterfaces screen called "modify ifDescr level" this will remove some of the most common (non-unique) elements in an ifDescr (things like Gigabit and such).

You might want to have a look at these.

hope this helps,
