Use the netmon seedfile to prevent discovery of your workstations. I use the
@OID syntax to prevent discovery of nodes that don't support SNMP (usually a
good first cut at specifying "workstations"). If you put
in your seedfile, this says ONLY find nodes that come back with an OID response,
ie. support SNMP.
You can do lots of other things with combinations of exclusions / inclusions /
