That sounds like you need to spend some time training the operators.
You can setup NetView so that everything is discovered unmanaged
and then you can manage what you like. That might help....

Hi Paul, exactly but i would like to leave all interfaces unmanaged when running the discovery because there are hundreds of routers and thousands of interfaces to change their status by hand. On the oid_to_type file there is a flag U that creates objects as unmanaged, but if someone manages the network that contains the interface it becomes managed, but the operators will manage these networks in this case the flag won´t work.

I think I understand the question, but I am not sure.

If you discover a router, you MUST discover all interfaces on that
router. You can unmanage and hide the interfaces you are not
interested in and NetView will not bother to poll them or use them
for the compound status of the object.

Does that help?

Hi list, im looking for this information on the Users Guide but i didn´t find. How can i discovery only if the router is UP and not it´s interfaces? Im using the netmon.seed and everything is working fine, but i want to monitor if the Router is Up or Down and not it´s internal interfaces. Would be hard set all interfaces as unmanaged? There are any option to use with netmon for discovery only the router wan interface? If i remove the -u option of netmon.lrf it will discovery only the Router interface?
