LMS 3.x Switch Port Reports question

Unanswered Question
Jun 25th, 2008

Suppose LMS 3.x is left alone for N days after getting fully configured, during which time User Tracking Major Acquisition runs once a day, would the Switch Port Report then have data about what ports have been up/down for >N days, or does that feature rely on LMS 3.x User Tracking being in action for the entire desired reporting period? Would the CM UT data migrated from LMS 2.6 help at all in this regard?

I have this problem too.

UT would have data on those ports for up to N days provided the port transitioned between up and down within those N days, and that change was picked up my User Tracking. The migrated data from 2.6 can be used for this report.

I'm still not clear on this: If no ports change state in the N days since LMS 3.x becomes operational, can 3.x report on ports that had gone up/down >N days ago, based on LMS 2.6 UT data imported during the upgrade?

The data inserted from LMS 2.6 will serve as a baseline for when a user was last on the port. From there, the reclaim switch port reports can be used to find idle ports. Of course, since the LMS 2.6 upgrade, the port would need to have transitioned to a down state for these reports to consider it available for reclamation.
