Is it possible to include switch port counters in custom reports on NetMRI?
We have an issue with some PCs sending out masses of multicast traffic, so I want to know either which interfaces are the top talkers over 24 hours or list all ports with over 1 million multicast/broadcast packets.
Looking at interface performance, you can get to that information on a per-switch basis, but I can not find it in a reporting field.
Does anyone know if there is a guide or list, detailing all the fields available? A website where you can do a quick search would be useful.

Unfortunately, I just looked and I don't see the interface performance statistics in the custom reports - I will look into whether we can add that.
In the meantime, you can use the API to get this information:
will return daily performance stats for each interface that has more than 10,000 outbound multi-cast packets in a given day.
You would then need to take the DeviceID and ifIndex values there and lookup the device and interface in their respective APIs:
Clearly this is more painful than a report, but it can get you what you need right now.
Note that by default I think interface performance statistics are only collected on trunk ports. You would have to adjust the settings in the Interface Groups section of the Setttings -> Collectors and Groups -> Groups -> Interface Groups. If you are seeing those stats elsewhere in the app, then it is already enabled.

Thanks for that, I will give that a go.
If performance stats in reports could be added to the development list, I'd appreactiate that.
