We have a common template for all the network devices.
For few of the selective network devices we want to monitor some extra metrics.
The selection criteria is hostname contains 'ABC' or 'XYZ' or '123'
In the new template device filter, we have added 3 rules.
hostname contains 'ABC'
hostname contains 'XYZ'
hostname contains '123'
Although precedence of this new template is lower than the precedence of common template,
new template is not applying to those devices which are expressed in the device filter.
How to fix ?
snmpcollector probe ANY version
Evaluation checks if all rules are satisfied, so every rules are treated as "AND" operator.
If you would like to express "OR" operator, you can use Regular Expression.
This is an example of device filter where device name contains "ABC" or "XYZ" or "123"
Hostname (or System Name)
The value for Regex is CASE SENSITIVE.
*abc* does not match in this example.
If you would like to use IP Address for filter, the same concept is applied.
Non working example.
