Fix Windows network device naming to use non-ethX names
Last modified: 2011-12-06 06:45:40 EST
Description of problem:
sigar attempts to dynamically map real Windows device names to ethX names, but this naming is useless since Windows has no notion of ethX. Change sigar to use the Windows device names instead.
This is good to go in v1.6.5-0.7
qmf: call 1 list
iface_map ['Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1', 'WAN Miniport (IPv6)-QoS Packet Scheduler-0000', 'WAN Miniport (IP)-QoS Packet Scheduler-0000', 'Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1', 'Local Area Connection', 'WAN Miniport (Network Monitor)-QoS Packet Scheduler-0000', 'Realtek RTL8139C+ Fast Ethernet NIC-WFP LightWeight Filter-0000', 'Realtek RTL8139C+ Fast Ethernet NIC-QoS Packet Scheduler-0000', 'Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1', 'Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1']
