tracking available switch ports

Hello,

I was wondering what tools people are using to track available switch ports, and if you would recommend the tool you are using.

Thanks,

Matt

Matt,

I use NetMRI (www.netcordia.com) to track switchports. For example it can tell me ports with multiple MAC addresses, unused down ports, and unused up ports.

Re: tracking available switch ports

If you have Ciscoworks, you can do this with User Tracking reports. I run user tracking for a location, then export it to MS Excel. From there I can sort it by device and port. I also bump the MAC up against another Excel spreadsheet containing the IEEE OUI assignments so that the report includes the NIC mfg. of each device seen on the network.
