    Hi
    You mentioned slow performance to open template in admin console gui
    Mentioned in release notes on hotfix link

    mps_webapp-8.5.1_HF1.zip fixes the following issue: - Improved performance opening Admin Console based probe GUI steps:  - import this package into your archive - deploy the package to the UIM primary hub - wasp probe will automatically restart.  This will also be included in UMP 9.0.

    Hello. However, is only the snmpcollector when opening the config from the probe itself.

    How shall I use the template itself to monitor just the interface?

    You can look at the below two variables in the template if you want to monitor the ifOperStatus or ifAdminStatus of interface

    hi

     

    IfAdminStatus metric provides you the value of Administrative Status of interface.

    IfOperStatus metric provides you the value of Operational Status of interface.

     

    These are generic in IF-MIB. (Interface MIB)

    So you could google for more meaning of these metrics.

    Hi. So do u mean that when I active IfAdminStatus and IfOperStatus it help us to monitored the interface for up and down?

    Thank for the prompt replied. Is there any document which can provide the below detail?

     

    IfAdminStatus metric provides you the value of Administrative Status of interface.

    IfOperStatus metric provides you the value of Operational Status of interface.

     

    • These would be the states

       

      ifAdminStatus

      1 : up

      2 : down

      3 : testing

       

       

      IfOperStatus 

      1 : up

      2 : down

      3 : testing

      4 : unknown

      5 : dormant

      6 : notPresent

      7 : lowerLayerDown

    Both IfAdminStatus and IfOperStatus are more generic MIB variables which describes the state of the interface . A google search would provide you with numerous articles which helps explain what these states are , these are not specific to a monitoring solution or UIM.

     

    Please take a look at the below article which has some details on the states
