Release : Any
Component : Spectrum Discovery and Modeling
The definition of ifAlias in the ifXTable in the ifMIB dictates how many characters can be stored in the ifAlias attribute.
According to the definition of the ifAlias attribute, the maximum size for an ifAlias is 64 characters:
SYNTAX DisplayString (SIZE (0 .. 64))
There is no way to increase the number of characters for ifAlias as this is dictated in the ifMIB.
This is functioning as designed.
