[SNAG-View] Tip of the month - extended NeDi import

As of SNAG-View version 3.6 and the associated NeDi version 1.6, users have the an extended import option for NeDi devices and nodes.

The new import offers the possibility to import devices or nodes in a targeted way based on filter rules. It is possible, for example, to import devices from a particular site and IP address range only (see Figure 2).

Figure 2: Filter rules

Previously imported devices are highlighted in blue in the object list (see Figure 2). Multiple devices can be selected for importing. The devices or nodes can be assigned to host groups during the import. If a device has already been imported, there is the option to update the device (see Figure 3).

Depending on the installed SNAG-View modules, a variety of information can be adopted. In this import action, for example, the location data are defined for the SNAG-View location map, and the SNMP data for the SNAG-View SNMP agent (see Figure 4).

Another advantage of the new integration is that SNAG-View traffic checks can be created directly in the NeDi device overview:
