Following implementation of new interfaces on Cisco equipment,

the name of the QOS element discovered is truncated.






Because the Length of the Element string is limited to 64 Characters  it possible to

exclude the "device domaine name"  from the element name .


Set the variables:

Naming - Truncate by Regular Expression -  NH_NAME_SRVC_PAT           to   (\..*)$           / ( Default ) = <empty>

                                              Naming - Use DNS - NH_USE_NAME_SRVC  to   sysName     / ( Default ) no

Run a new device discovery


The Element name will more short and the whole device description will visible.
