Data Object Description

The value will be the name of the interface as reported by the operating system.

A Unicast IP address of another system directly reachable w/o routing. IPv4 address is specified using dotted decimal notation. For example, "". IPv6 addresses are 128-bit addresses represented as eight fields of up to four hexadecimal digits. A colon separates each field (:). For example, 2001:DB8:101::230:6eff:fe04:d9ff. The address can also consist of the symbol '::' to represent multiple 16-bit groups of contiguous 0's only once in an address as described in RFC 2373.

The media-dependent of the address or empty string if not yet learned. For Ethernet interfaces this is a MAC address reported in the format: XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX where XX are hexadecimal numbers.
