Well, I've never seen that particular message. But the deletion of objects behaves this way:
Nodes are controlled by the 'Node down delete interval' set in 'Options.. SNMP configuration'.
That defaults to one week. I think most people prefer to delete things manually, though.
As for interfaces, they are either deleted during a configuration poll (or demandpoll) or they are not.
They are not deleted in the case where the entry for theSNMP sysObjectID for that device in the
oid_to_type file contains the S flag. This is so for many types of Cisco devices. In that case, you are
expected to delete it manually, or remove the flag.

Please respond to

[nv-l] Interface delete


When does Netview (7.14 FP01 on Linux) discover that an interface has been deleted ?

If I delete a loopback interface on a cisco router and performs a demand poll on Netview, the following happens !

- the interface goes red and poll results says "Interface is DOWN Communication prohibited by filtering"
