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
48port modules 10 48 480
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.
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.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
