May I know how can I monitor how long a port had been in the 'down' status for a cisco box? Purpose is to determine whether a port is underutilise (ie nobody is using a particular port for a long period of time).
Thinking of using these variables (port number, port status, port ifLastChange) to monitor this statistics, is there any program that can automatically capture and generate these values in report format.
Not sure whether I am in the correct track? Please advise. Thank you.
syslog server captures the up/down status with that current date/time when it gets the value, it doesn't tell how long the port had been up/down. That's why I thought of using the mib value "ifLastChange" to determine that.
The purpose is to monitor the ports usage so as to generate a monthly report to show how long a port had not been in use.
