    Looking for query/report to show switchports that have not been used since <date>

      All,

       

      First of all, we are running Solarwinds version 11.0.1.  We have a security requirement in our group to periodically check on all our switches and turn off ports that have not been used for more than 3 months.

       

      Currently the way it is being done is really silly.  Someone goes to each switch/port in the web console that is not shutdown and has no active connection, clicks on the port and looks at the history to see the last time data travelled across that port.  We have about 60 switches and most of them have 48 ports so this task ends up taking quite a while to do.

       

      My question is, is there a simple way to build a report/sql query/etc. that will display all ports that are currently:

      - not shut down

      - doesn't currently have an active connection

      - have had no data/utilization since <DATE>

       

      Ideally it would show:

      hostname, IP, port, description, date last used (when data actually was transmitted)

       

      Thanks for you time!
