    Configuring Interface Aliasing (ACM Procedure)

    You configure interface aliasing if you want the traffic interface fields in logs to display a text string instead of the default traffic interface names. For IDP Series devices, the interface fields in the logs that appear in NSM are srcIntf and dstIntf (source and destination interfaces). The default traffic interface names are eth2, eth3, and so forth.

    Figure 1 shows the ACM Configure Network Interface Hardware page, where you can configure interface aliasing.

    To configure interface aliasing:

    1. Connect to the Appliance Configuration Manager (ACM).
    2. From the main menu, click Reconfigure Network Interface Hardware.
    3. Specify an alias for a traffic interface by typing a string in the Alias box.
    4. Save and apply your changes.
