Question:

Why is the interface monitoring profile not applied by default in CA Performance Management?

Environment:
CA Performance Management, all supported versions
Answer:

CA Performance Management was designed to provide a high level of granularity
as to what you would like to monitor.

Not all customers want to discover interfaces on all of their devices therefor it is
not enabled by default.
