Discovery question

    When our discovery process sees a vlan, does it stop there or will it discovery the interfaces on the vlan as well?  Right now I am not seeing the interfaces on vlans.  Thoughts?

    Are you talking about the NIS discovery?

    If so - the interface traffic query should discovery all of the MIB-II interfaces on the SNMP enabled device. Can you add that device by hand in interface_traffic and see what you get?

    Also, if the Interface_Traffic Probe fails to connect via SNMP and the customer is positive they're using the proper community string, make sure the customer has setup his devices to allow the server hosting the Interface_Traffic Probe to be able to query the target nodes - I see this all the time.
