Ignoring Applications or Nodes in SAM

Updated: 3-9-2017

You can ignore traffic generated by applications or from a specific node.

Ignore application traffic

If you decide to no longer monitor an application, disable discovery or monitoring for that application in the Manage QoE Applications page.

These settings are on a global level. You cannot turn application discovery or monitoring on or off for specific sensors.

  1. Click Settings > All Settings in the menu bar.
  2. Click QoE Settings > Manage QoE Applications.
  3. Toggle Monitoring or Discovery OFF.

Use the following table to determine which combination of settings you want to use.

  Monitoring ON Monitoring OFF
Discovery ON Applications are automatically discovered and application traffic is monitored Applications are automatically discovered, but application traffic is not monitored
Discovery OFF Applications cannot be automatically discovered, and application traffic is monitored Applications cannot be automatically discovered, and application traffic is not monitored

Ignore node traffic

You can permanently ignore all traffic from specific nodes that you monitor on a network sensor. This is often used to reassign a node to a different network sensor.

You cannot add a node back to its original network sensor.

  1. Click Settings > All Settings in the menu bar.
  2. In the Settings grouping, click QoE Settings > Manage QoE Packet Analysis Sensors.
  3. Select a network sensor, and click Edit.
  4. Select the node you want to remove, and click Delete.

The node is removed from the sensor and all traffic to and from the node is ignored.
