Since my last post a lot of improvements have been made to network interface discovery process, which is great.
I can see now that there is a column which states the "Discovery Status" for the interface, either "new" or "modified". It would be great to have a third type listed under this column i.e. "suspended".
As currently there is no way to delete an interface from site24x7 when its not in use any more for some reason, the closest we do is suspend that interface. By having a third type (suspended), it would allow us a way identify and to reactivate some of those suspended interfaces if the admin and operation status of the interface happens to be up during the discovery process, but discovery status is suspended.
I hope it does make sense, what I am trying to say.
