Disable interface down alerts for specific interface


M370 logging to Dimension.

I have a interface configured with a mobile 5g device that goes down and up a couple af times per week. This is expected.

Process: networkd
Message: External interface[Mobile5G-Ext] is now DOWN, link 1, ip= mask=

Is it possible to disable these alerts on this interface in Dimension (or the device itself)?

    Hi @Robert_Vilhelmsen

    Dimension alerts via log type (the message-id in each log) -- There is probably a manual alert set up for that log type via firebox system manager.

    It's an all or nothing notification. If the device is a USB modem, the firewall will send less of these, but if it's just plugged into an ethernet port, it'll act as if it's a normal external.
