[netapp: netmon_main: net.if.mgmt.sameSubnet:warning]: ifconfig: IP address 'x.x.x.x' configured on dedicated management port 'e0M' is on the same subnet as IP address 'x.x.x.x' configured on data port Prod1. Management IP addresses must be on dedicated management subnets.

[net.if.mgmt.defaultGateway:warning] route: Static or default route with gateway 'x.x.x.x' is targeted to dedicated management interface 'e0M'. Data traffic using this route might be throttled due to low bandwidth, or dropped if a protocol filter is configured.
