I have looked extensively and there does not seem to be a way to provide a report based on used/un-used ports over any period of time that used to exist in Inventory Manager.

There was youtube video posted about archives but it doesn't outline how to generate the reports.

Can someone please enlighten me

I would also like to know this!

It appears that there used to be a Capacity Planning Report that you could run from Inventory Manager (the legacy Java console). But since that no longer exists - I cannot seem to find where this report ended up being moved to in the web interface?

Here is a GTAC that describes the old functionality.

It should be a pre-populated report under the Reports Tab.

Reporting functionality in the Extreme Management Center requires a license other than NMS-Base. If you don't see reports that indicates that you have an NMS-Base license and should contact sales to purchase an upgrade.

Thanks for the update
There is not a report that we have been able to find similar to the information that was presented in the Inventory Manager Report.

It's not a report, but if you telnet/ssh into the switch, you can run the following command to get this info ...

show port info detail | include Port:|Link\sState:|Link\sUps:|Link\sDowns


It's been working pretty well for me. Credit due to whoever posted that on another thread. I just pasted it away in a text file and use it all the time.
That might work fine, if we didn't need to provide the port to another group, plus we need it for over 100 devices. That was why the Inventory Manager Report was so useful.
