Delete interfaces in NPM

To temporarily stop collecting new data for an interface, unmanage the interface or configure a period when no data will be collected for the interface (schedule maintenance).

To stop monitoring an interface with NPM, remove the interface from monitored resources on the node or delete the interface:

  • Remove the interface from resources monitored on the parent node: On the node details view, click List Resources in the Management widget, and clear the interface box.
  • If you cannot find the interface in resources monitored on the node, you have probably changed its details and NPM is having issues with mapping the interface. In this case, delete and re-add the interface.

Delete interfaces from Manage Entities page

  1. Click Settings > Manage Nodes.

    To view interfaces on a node, click the arrow at the end of a row. Interfaces display in the Related Entities pane.

    To get to Manage Entities from Manage Nodes, click the New Manage Entities page link at the top.

    To get back to Manage Nodes, click Commands > Switch Back in the top right corner of the page.

  2. Select interfaces to delete, and click Delete.

    Selected interfaces are deleted immediately. All references to these interfaces are cleared during the database maintenance (by default at 2:15 a.m).
