WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

In the DB, the default description field value is defined in InterfaceAlias field, type nvarchar(100). 

However, Cisco MIBs for IfAlias by default store only 64 characters. But, it allows you to put 256 character long descriptions on the interfaces, but by default, they will not report it via SNMP.

Use a command

“snmp ifmib ifalias long”,

The device will store up to 256 characters in the MIB.
