I had a question from my management earlier, which was 'how many of each device are active on the network?'. Due to the scale of the network, I don't add all devices to NPM, but rather use IPAM to see if a device is present or not. I can do a search for 'cisco' for example, and it will come back with 230 entries, around half of which are transient. I thus have to go through the results list and add up all the active entries.
Is there any quick way to do so that I can rapidly find out how many of device X are active on the system?
So I am going to throw out a few recommendations for you.
