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 Status, or the Operation Status 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
Testing Up Clear
Testing Down Trouble
Testing Others Attention

If you want only the interface traffic monitoring & not the up / down status of the interfaces, you can disable the status polling option for the interface. Check here.
