My two cents worth about Acknowledge / UnAcknowledge

Let me elaborate a little about how Acknowledge / UnAcknowledge works.

When you acknowledge an interface (dark Green) the purpose is to have
the node turn back to Green so that Green propagates up the hierarchy of
submap levels.

There is no need to UnAcknowledge an interface because
UnAcknowledgement happens automatically the next time
netmon successfully pings the interface.
The interface is automatically is set to "UnAcknowledged" (Green)
when the status returns to normal.

If you manually UnAcknowledge an Acknowledged interface it will surely
turn back to Red because it is still down and netmon has not been able
successfully status poll the interface.

Note: I always recommend that you acknowledge at the interface level
You can Acknowledge at the higher levels (node, segment, network, IP
but your results may not be what you expected.

Follow Ralph Schiffinger's instructions is one way to find all of those
by status. You may be able to build a collection for these objects as
