Hi.
I am looking for a pdf report where you can see utilization on some selected ports on different XOS switches. 

A nice report with Graphs over a selected time would be nice. 

Does enybody know if this exist today or can be build without to much programming?

You can actually use OneView or Console from the main Netsight menu to generate a port view .pdf. You can also generate custom network reports inside Netsight and Purview using the reports tab.

Thanks. I have tried the Custom Report feature, but you have to save the report as a .csv file which gives to much afterwork.
Do you know if we can select interfaces on differnet switches, so that we can build one pdf presenting a report for these selected interfaces on different switches?

You could run a show support command from each switch. Then convert the report to a .pdf. I usually generate a network summary report from inside Purview to see port utilization. You can also try the custom report features from inside the Inventory manager, Console, and NAC menus.

You could also export the port files. Port files can also be located in the following location on
each switch:

cat /proc/net/expkt/stats

Try using the following method located in this GTAC article:

Thanks.
I have to do some testing now and look at your suggestions. 

Though, I have say that it would have been nice with pregenerated report where I just could add some interfaces. There is already a report for Top N interfaces. Why not also a report for some selected interfaces?

If you are wanting to look at a specific group of port you can create a port group. This works just like creating a device group and would allow you to then select that group then different flexviews. 

The down side is at this time OneView does not support port groups so you would only be able to view it in Console.

Which version of Netsight are you using?

Are you looking for something like this? A couple of report of a couple of different switches and links?



If running 6.2 or 6.3, you should be able to right change the render option from grid to chart and save to report designer. Each component saved will be accessible in the report designer.


In order to graph a port, the switch/port has to collect stats on.


Use the report designer


Pick out the components for your report. These can come from custom reports, purview, wireless, nac etc.


Save and you can send yourself a pdf of your own report nightly/weekly/monthly.

I am using NetSight 6.3 and have tested your explanation.

It looks much better and I think this is something that I can use.

Thanks :-)
