Yes, that would be fantastic! Being able to see when an IP was last seen active allows us then to consolidate unused IPs and release them from reservation. You can never have too much info! Thanks

Re: Suggestion: Use seed routers to discover and import connected switches

Yes it will, however we then have to individually edit the snmpv3 creds for each device. Could it therefore not be useful to enter the credentials prior to discovery to negate the need to then have to edit each one, especially useful if we use the same creds across your entire estate. This could then also be used to extract the Hostname from the switch and apply it to the device name. In t

For example, being able to see logged on user in Port Mapper, and send message. Or in NetScanner, being able to see the switch hostname and interface number alongside the connected device. This would facilitate being able to see which port

Suggestion: Use seed routers to discover and import connected switches
