Status polling

If you are specifying a specific "node" with an IP address in the SNMP Configuration (community names, timeout, and etc.) that is a router, does netmon actually check the status of each interface (ICMP)? Or does it only check only the specified IP address?

Re: Status polling

Peter,

Netmon will get info on all the interfaces from the router via SNMP, assuming the community string is configured correctly to allow this. It can then do a periodic status poll, via ICMP on each interface that has an IP address.
