As a PRTG User, I want to specify which network interfaces, disks and etc will not be added during auto-discovery of device.
Details of User Story
In the process of auto-detection, sensors are often added that are not really needed. For example Linux loop back interfaces, Windows WFP, QoS, Teredo virtual interfaces, Windows partitions and other. These sensors are not needed, but occupy a license. Manual removal of sensors takes too much time.
Global exclusions lists or ability to add exclusion into device template
- Implemented: You can define include and exclude filters in custom device templates to limit which sensors are created during the auto-discovery as of PRTG 21.1.65. For details, see the article How can I include and exclude sensors from device templates?
