What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Just start up Ostinato 
2. Open Ports and Streams PortGroup 0
3. Numerous "usbmon1, usbmon2 ...etc" devices listed as ports

What is the expected output? 
I expected to just see my Ethernet ports (which are listed).

What do you see instead?  But now I have numerous entries (Port 3: usbmon1 , 
Port4: usbmon2 ...etc) listed along with my true ethernet ports


What version and revision of the product are you using (available in the
About dialog)? On what operating system?
I'm running Ostinato 0.5.1 on a Centos 6.5 Linux system.  (I previously used 
OpenSuse - and wouldn't have these extra "usbmon" entries).

I figure this is a Centos thing - but haven't figured out how to get rid of 
these from the Ports list (and I don't want to disable all the USB ports on my 
system).


Please provide any additional information below.

You could try unloading the usbmon kernel module (unless its compiled into the 
kernel image).

Although Ostinato doesn't currently support any USB related protocols, they are 
valid interfaces to generate/capture traffic on, so should appear in the port 
list.

I will however, accept this as an enhancement to "generically" filter the 
portlist to user-defined "interesting" ports only, not just specifically for 
usbmon devices.

Thanks for the quick reply.  
I've tired unloading "usbmon" - but believe it's now compiled into the kernel 
image, so you can't unload.

Your suggestion to "generically" filter to user-defined 'interesting' ports 
only is a perfect solution.

Regards (looking forward to your impending update ;-)
