Use the Monitors tab in the Roles and Sub roles Wizard (SETTINGS menu > Libraries > Roles and Sub roles Library) to configure the initial monitor list designated as part of network discovery.

Device role monitor view controls include:

Designate Priority and Conditions

Use these controls to pre-determine key (critical) monitors, opt to use soft (check support first) or hard (always apply) monitor designation and to apply advanced or custom filtering.

Note: For interface ports, Operationally Up means that the port is in a running state and not in a non-operational state (such Testing, Unknown, or Down).

Tip: You can create custom filters with the Filter Library.
