Unused Ports -> Contextual web resource

One of the features I love about UDT is the ability to report on interfaces on a switch that are inactive and how long they have been inactive for.  We have a lot of "fully patched" edge switches in our environment so determining which ones are inactive used to be time consuming.

 

As the number of switches we monitor is quite large (>3000) I use the "daysunused" field and then filter on a specific node ID or other to narrow the results to the number of switches that I want to report on.  Unfortunately, I can only generate the report in Win32 on our main server (not available in web reporting) and need to built custom reports any time our field techs are looking for this data.

 

Ideally I would have a contextual resource when any technician opened a switch detail view in NPM that would show these results.  Even the ability to click on a link to generate a contextual report.  Maybe I can use my existing report with a contextual variable that is based on the node that is being viewed?
