Issue/Introduction

Item names for some Component Items aren't useful. How can we change the name of these items?

For example Firewall Disk Partitions are showing names such as "device-disk-1","device-disk-2", "device-disk-3". Expect them to be named using what they represent, like the root or '/' directory/partition, or the /boot partition. In this case they are represented by these MIB Objects.

  • .1.3.6.1.2.1.25.3.8.1.2.1 = STRING: "/"
  • .1.3.6.1.2.1.25.3.8.1.2.2 = STRING: "/boot"
  • .1.3.6.1.2.1.25.3.8.1.2.3 = STRING: "/var/log"

Environment

Release : 3.7

Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration

Resolution

The Names metric is what controls Item names for a given Vendor Certification.

Use the Extension function for Certifications to over-ride the default Name metric expression with a custom one that changes the item names to a more meaningful value.
