I have a tree made up of many different autodiscovered services/protocols. Why aren’t the classes sorted alphabetically?
Classes in the traffic tree are sorted from most-specific criteria to less-specific. Along that vein, the autodiscovered classes are sorted into the following categories:
1. Applications/services with TCP or UDP-based matching rules
2. Applications/services with IP-based matching rules (applications/service considered both TCP and UDP)
3. Discovered_Ports classes
4. Non-IP protocol classes (for example, AppleTalk, IPX, Protocol_XXX)
Within each category, classes are arranged in alphabetical order.
How are the classes sorted relative to each other in a tree that has, at the same hierarchical level, IP address-based classes, application classes, Frame Relay FRAD folders and PVC classes, MPLS classes, and VLAN classes?
Here is the sort order:
1. Frame Relay FRAD folder and PVC classes
2. VLAN classes
3. MPLS classes
4. IP address-based classes
5. Application classes, following the sort order explained in the question above on how autodiscovered classes are sorted.
