Mac/IP address mapping tool for use with HP Procurve Switches

Posted on 2011-10-25
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Is anyone aware of a free/low cost tool that can be used to map MAC and IP addresses to ports on HP Procurve network switches. I need to be able to look historically at port usage using both MAC and IP addresses. We currently use HP's ProcurveManager+ product for mangement and reporting but it gives no historical port mapping information. I can see from the switch CLI's themselves most current MAC addresses but again no historical information.
Our Procurve estate consists of the following devices:-
Procurce 5400zl core switch, Procurve 2500 and 2600 edge switches.

    I like SolarWinds switchport mapper. It is part of the engineer's toolkit
    You can get 30-day eval of the toolkit.
    You can also get a 30-day eval of this standalone product
