How does Interface Status Polling work ?

OpManager monitors the availability of the interface and generates Up/Down alerts if the interface status poll is enabled.  The availability of the interface is decided by the Admin/Operational of the particular interface.

What is the severity for Admin/ Operation down status

Admin Status Operation Status Severity
Down Any (Up / Down / Testing / Unknown / Dowmant / Not present) Critical
Up Down Trouble
Up Testing / Unknown / Not present Attention
Up Up Clear

If you want only the interface traffic monitoring & not the up / down status, disable the status polling option for the interface
