Ok I am really in need of some suggestions here. Part of our backplane is a 6509 which acts as the go between for a server farm to a collection of vlans. My manager wants a report of monthly uptime statistics for each specific port that a handful of servers are attatched too. Now I'm thinking I could maybe do this two ways, SNMP or syslog events, but I've been reading and reading through documents and nothing seems to be what I'm looking for. We also have LMS 2.6, w/DFM which I'm almost sure I should be able to do something with it also but am having problems with DFM separately. Is there a way to generate an SNMP event for port downtime and easily translate it into a statistic? i.e. something as simple as a percentage of uptime over a 30 day history. I really appreciate any help, or even pointers in the right direction here. Thanks.
