Ability to disable DNS lookups on Network Discovery

#1 Post by LdubSham » Fri Jul 13, 2018 7:20 am

When discovering devices there is an attempt to resolve hostnames via DNS. Even though no DNS servers have been defined either under the network or in cacti settings - it defaults to using system configured DNS servers.

We would prefer to completely disable this functionality within cacti GUI to reduce the number of DNS requests - but there doesn't appear to be a way to do it.

Thanks

Automation has an option to disable discover of DNS within the Network's settings.
