Limited Analysis for L2 devices


#1

Today, I saw this message on an L2 Device:

I unsuccessfully tried to add it to the whitelist, then remembered L2 Devices were not subject to Limited Analysis Mode, so I looked at the deprecated assignments page and saw this:

Why would the new protocol page say the device is in “Limited Analysis” when the old page says “Full Analysis”?

Thanks for writing this up, @lipsum.

This is a known defect for the class of L2 devices that are parents of L3 devices. The old view is correct, and we’re tracking a ticket to bring the HTML view back in line.

Note that the class of L2 devices that represent gateways, because they can accumulate significant activity and metrics, are subject to limited analysis. You’ll find that those devices, if shown as “Limited Analysis”, are whitelist-able.
