Counting # LAN ports

Hello

We have a customer that has a demand to know how many XbaseTX ports that exists in the network on a monthly basis. The network has around 2500 Cisco routers/switches, fixed configuration as well as modular devices.

Counting xbaseTXports is not easy - is it possible to customize CiscoWorks so that a report can be generated that gives a list of the different devices and the number of ports (lust an example - number of XbaseTX ports is the interesting part):

model # devices # TX ports/device # TX ports

Catalyst 2924 200 24 4800

Catalyst 2924c 100 22 2200

.

.

.

Catalyst 6500

48port modules 10 48 480

Total 34567

I am a technician and I would like to spend as little time as possible counting ports or generating reports based on 10 different inventory reports (which by the way can only generate reports for 50 devices at a time) , using sorting in Excell.

Anyone has any suggestions.?

Thanks Christian

As far as I know, there is not an application feature for this currently.

Re: Counting # LAN ports

There are a methods you can use:

Right a set of scripts / build programs that walk the mibs pull and consolidate the information. If you're not a programmer and don't have allot of hands on SNMP MIB skills this is probably not the best choice.

If the client has Device Fault Manager (Smarts Performance Manager) DFM then you can create a simple set of ASL scripts that will pull the information from the InCharge Database - if the management system is properly maintained and used this is an excellent method. Does require a some coding knowledge/skills.

Look at www.solarwinds.net and you'll find switch port mapper.

There are some shareware tools that you could find on the net.

Re: Counting # LAN ports

there are a couple of things you can try ...

goto

RME

inventry

custom-reports

then select per-port report....this will give you

device ,card and port on card...you can export this to excel..

ALSO

rme

administration

inventry

custom reports

slect "create"

then select port count from the report type ....

and give the report a name....

from there you can select your view and choose the type of decive you want to report on ...or create your own views and it will report on them
