Manage Interface Polling Behavior

If you have the Modify Component Polling role right, you can disable or enable polling capability on specific interfaces from the UI. This feature allows for more granular polling control than monitoring profile filters alone. Monitoring profile filters are limited because they can apply only to common attributes.

If you have the Modify Component Polling role right, you can disable or enable polling capability on specific interfaces from the UI. This feature allows for more granular polling control than monitoring profile filters alone. Monitoring profile filters are limited because they can apply only to common attributes.
 When polling is disabled, polling is turned off and polling cannot occur. When polling is enabled, polling can occur, but this feature does not turn on polling. For polling to occur, the appropriate monitoring profiles and life cycle states must be set. For more information, see Configure Monitoring Profiles and Manage Device Life Cycles.
Disabling or enabling polling generates administrative events. For more information, see Event Types.
You can also use a Data Aggregator REST web service to disable or enable polling on other components. For more information, see Manage Polling Behavior for Components.
By default, polling is enabled for all new components. You can use a Data Aggregator REST web service to disable polling for all new components that are associated with specific metric families. For more information, see Manage Default Polling Behavior.
