skip polling one or more devices
« on: November 30, 2018, 03:37:10 PM »
either temporarily or permanently - how to exclude a device (or several) from getting polled.  Not sure of the semantics of "nedi.pl -S X=existing dev" - can there be multiple "X=" entries? or is this not the way; then what is the way?

-SX skips any device found in the DB and only attempts to discover unkown ones. This is ideal to find new devices in large networks (e.g. ARP cache fo routers).

You can exclude devices from monitoring (maintenance mode), but not the discovery. Do you have any particular reason for this?

We're debugging high aggregate cpu threshold alarms on a couple of devices and considered stopping NeDi's polling as a"debugging step".  We are not at this time thinking that nedi is the cause; its one of many other servers polling the network.  Thanks for the feedback!  -bob

Quick and dirty;
Change SNMP community on the devices so NeDi can't read the device.
If the CPU goes down then it's most likely related to SNMP.
Does the time when NeDi scan your network correspond with high CPU on the device?
