NetMRI - port counters in custom reports

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.

In general, custom reports uses the same object model as the API. You can visit: https://netmri/api/docs (you need to be authenticated) and search in there in the Index tab. Most of the things available in the API will be available in custom reports.

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.
