To display the interface as unplugged rather than down, select Display Interface as Unplugged.
Designate bandwidth for the interface
Default transmit and receive bandwidths are 1000 Mb/s. If a device does not report its bandwidth, or the interface bandwidth is constrained by other network devices, specify a custom bandwidth that reflects the performance of the interface.
Select Custom Bandwidth, and provide values for Transmit and Receive Bandwidth, in Mb/s.
Change polling interval
Edit how often SolarWinds NPM polls the interface status and performance data.
Interface Status Polling is the interval in seconds between the status checks on the selected interface. By default, interface status is checked every 120 seconds.
Collect Statistics Every is the interval in minutes on which performance statistics for the interface are determined. By default, it is every 9 minutes.
Custom properties and dependencies
Provide values for custom properties for the interface, and edit dependencies. See Custom properties and Mirror network object dependencies in the Orion Web Console.

You can customize thresholds whose reaching triggers alerts for individual interfaces. You can change alerting thresholds for the following metrics on the appropriate interface:
To customize a threshold, select Override Orion General Thresholds next to the appropriate metric, and provide new values for Warning and Critical Thresholds.
