A feature that we used quite a bit in NetSight was Capacity Planning which could be found on the Tools menu in Inventory Manager. With the deprecation of the Inventory Manager java app, have we lost this functionality?

Hi ,thanks but doesnt actually explain to generate the reports. Just tells you how to archive the capacity planning data itself

I have this same question - and it doesn't appear that this was answered properly.

Does anyone know where the "Capacity Planning" went when it was carried over to XMC OneView?

*EDIT* - I found that running this from the CLI on the switch it pretty helpful ...

show port info detail | inc Port:|Link\sState:|Link\sUps:|Link\sDowns:[/code]That came from Brandon Clay on this thread.
I have the same question as well, the command line is great but only if you clear counters and take a look later on, it seems like there is some functionality setup to be similar to the old Capacity Planning in some way?
I'm running Extreme Management Center 8.2.5.50, upgraded from netsight a few months ago.... After a lightning strike and multiple dead switches, I desperately need to run the unused port query. I just discovered, its basically non-existent in Management center. Has this been resolved recently?

Thanks Dorian,

So for capacity planning to work port statistics must be collected for all interfaces? Just checking since this wasn't necessary when Inventory Manager was around.

I am a little unclear on that myself. I have enabled statistic collection for most of my switches (I chosed "Historical") but when I run this report in XMC it comes up with a big red circle of "Not Collected" ports. 😞
Thanks Dorian, i've seen that, thats why i said 'basically non-existent'

The most i can get out of it is a red circle with no collection information, as others have stated. Clicking into the circle just gives me a list of inventory.

I'm not looking for a summary, i need a list of specific ports that have not been active for 'x' days
