Rule Override and Port Monitoring Example (v1.1.99.0 release)

Overriding rules can be as simple as, preventing alerts on a known port that an administrator disabled, to customizing a rule timeout such as bandwidth thresholds.

In the above example, CT0.ETH7 is disabled at the Ethernet Switch and enabling IgnoreDisabledPorts will prevent an alert on this port. If this override was applied globally, all ports that are disabled would not alert.
