Sure, simply unmanage the other interfaces, or am I missing
some other requirement.

Hello all.

now to ge toff the MLM subject.  have a new curiosity.

Is it possible to ICMP ping a routers loopback and NOT status poll all the other interfaces serial, ETH, etc...on that router. <- The only time it is polled in that regards is for COnfiguration polling which occurs every 24 hours.
We want to simply have the routers and switches send traps back to NV
if a interface goes down. The only Interface on the device we care
about polling (ICMP) is the loopback address. Is it possible to stop
the SNMP polling of all the other interfaces on that device? I hope
this makes sense. I want all other itnerfaces to only inform me via
traps. The reason for all this is too reduce netmon polling cycle time.
Thank You
