    SwitchPort Mapper as a NPM module


       I would find it enourmously benificial if SolarWinds could make the switchport mapper application a module that can be added to Orion. I am always getting asked to check out a potential network problem and I am given the machine's IP address but most of the time I am given what is labeled on the wall jack (which I use as the port descriptions on the switches). I sometimes have to look at the port descriptions on 3 or 4 switches to find it.

       If Solarwinds would build a product that would periodically scan all the switches and keep this information (IP, MAC, Port Description, vlan membership, etc) in the Orion database where it can be quickly viewed via a web browser I would not hesitate to purchase it.
