hmmmmm....I know you can get the number managed in DFM by issuing the following command:

#/opt/CSCOpx/objects/smarts/bin/sm_tpmgr --server=DFM --sizes

Does that help?

Assuming all devices are managed by RME, you can create an Inventory Custom Report with the rule:


The will produce a report that lists all interfaces in the format "device interface type". For example:

nms-6506a VLAN 17 propVirtual

If this report is generated using cwcli (or exported from the GUI), you can count the lines of output to get a total number of interfaces.

Using RME is probably the most reliable way since it generally manages the bulk of devices in the network.
