Add/Edit an Interface Filter

Roles can be pre-configured to use Active Monitors when conditions you select match or evaluate to true. You can filter on operational state, administrative state, regular expression matches, and much more.

Important: While Active Interface Monitor Filters help to identify which roles warrant a particular monitor, Role Monitor Apply Rules (Apply Always, Check Support) have a deciding influence.

Filter Groups

Single or combined filter groups can be used. For example, you can simply filter on any combination of two operational states (let's say Operationally up and Administratively down) within a single group. Or, for example, you could use that criteria in combination with another group, let's say Interface Type, where Interface Type equals Fast Ethernet or Ethernet. Values within groups are ORed together (any can be true) but if you have more than one group, group expressions evaluate together as ANDs (criteria for each group must be true to be considered a match).
