Todd, the best way to handle is to unmanage the workstations - not only will
it eliminate the events but also save some system overhead as NetView does
not poll unmanaged devices. You can have them discovered as "unmanaged" by
modifying /usr/OV/conf/oid_to_type and restarting netmon. This change is for
"from now on" - you will have to manually unmanage already discovered
devices. Finally, if you don't even want to see the workstations on you maps
you may accomplish this through use of a seedfile. Again, this is for "from
now on" - you would need to manually delete already discovered devices or
rediscover your network. Let us know if any questions about all of this.
