In older versions of the NAM software and CATOS, it was possible to collect statistics on an individual layer 2 switch port, so that one could see utilization of that particular link over time.

What I used to do was collect statistics on the NAM for the switch ports that serviced the routers and told me how much traffic was heading out to the WAN. I'd like to be able to do the same thing after the upgrade.
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 customers befor...
