You use several different pages to perform the tasks for interfaces and routers:
Active Interfaces Page
The
Active Interfaces
page shows interfaces, routers, custom virtual interfaces (CVIs), and interface aggregations. The page shows only the routers and interfaces that have contributed to the collected data at some time. You can create and delete CVIs, merge interfaces, and edit properties. You also can delete routers and interfaces without deleting them from the system entirely, for example, to address capacity issues.
Select
Interfaces: Physical & Virtual
from the
Administration
page, then use the
Active Interfaces
page to perform the following main tasks:
  • View details.
  • Edit details.
    Interface names may not contain the characters < or >. Names with these characters are detected as a cross-site scripting attack from the UI.
  • Delete interfaces or routers from the page.
  • Create custom virtual interfaces (CVIs).
  • Merge interfaces.
Available Interfaces Page
The
Available Interfaces
page shows information about all of the interfaces and routers, including the ones that have not contributed to the collected data at any time. You can enable or disable interfaces, delete routers and their interfaces from the system, and perform some polling troubleshooting.
Select
System: Enable Interfaces
from the
Administration
page, then use the
Available Interfaces
page to perform the following tasks:
  • Check polling and view details about routers and interfaces.
  • Enable or disable interfaces.
  • Delete end-of-life routers from the system.
Interface Templates Page
You can create a custom interface template to change the way interface names and descriptions appear in several reports.
Select
System: Templates
from the
Administration
page, then use the
Interface Templates
page to perform the following tasks:
  • Create and apply a template
  • Edit a template
