What is the exact technical purpose of the Device Type attribute?

Question:

What the purpose of the device type attribute?

 

Answer:

The device type is mostly a display and categorization attribute, however, the device type may be used with rule based containers and may also determine whether a feature is applicable such as process monitoring (linux or windows types only) or Netflow (router, switch, firewall). 

While this list cannot be modified at this time, it has no real effect for monitoring other than determining eligibility for process monitoring.
