[Check_mk (english)] Ignoring interface

Ok. That did the trick. So the complete solution is to set:

“if_inventory_uses_description = True” in main.mk and cmk –II and check_mk

This will populate the snmp information with the interface descriptions
such as wlan0, eth0, ect.

Once that can be seen in the autochecks, then you can use

ignored_services += [

(["Host1"],["Interface .*wlan0.*"]),



ignored_services += [

(["Host_Group"],ALL_HOSTS,["Interface .*wlan0.*"]),


to catch the interface name in the snmp description and apply it to a host
or hostgroup.

Thanks again for all the help!
