Cisco Trunk Interface Monitoring

Recommended Posts

Created a separate Datasource for monitoring Cisco trunk interfaces only. I find this extremely useful for MSP's when you are monitoring hundreds of Cisco devices but do not need to create alerts on access Ports. This helps cut down on "noise" alerts that have no real actionable tasks. The majority of access ports will connect to end devices or servers that you are already monitoring individually. For our purposes, I left the normal interface datasource as active but shutoff the alerts so we can still pull the statistical data on access ports. 

To eexclude the Trunk Ports for the normal interface datasource, create a filter for the following OID

.   IS NOT EQUAL   1
