To generate stable QoS graph of metrics and to migrate the probe to standard static thresholds using the threshold_migrator probe, the device ID key (useHostNameForDeviceIdentification) must be based on the hostname and not on the IP address. To do so, change the default value of the device ID key to Yes.

Follow these steps:

== Navigate to the Raw Configuration interface > setup section.

== Set the useHostNameForDeviceIdentification key to Yes (Default: No) to generate the Device ID based on hostname.

== Save the configuration and exit.

== Restart the probe.
