Leave the other options on this tab at their defaults.


Time tab:

Select, for instance, the Custom schedule option in the Times box, set the time to 14:00, and select Monday only from the Days box. This will run the activity at 2pm every Monday to create the cross reference report.

Leave all other options on this tab at their defaults.


Devices tab:

There is no need to select any devices for this activity as it uses existing reports for its data.


E-mail tab:

Set preferences for reporting on this Activity.


Options tab:


Current Port info table: the path of the port info table to use for the x-ref


Current MAC address table: the path of the MAC address table to use for the x-ref


Current ARP table: the path of the ARP table to use for the x-ref


Max MAC entries per port: enables a limit of the number of MAC entries to be displayed in the report on a port - useful for trunks and similar ports

If you select 5 entries here, if there are more than 5 MAC entries the 5 latest MAC entries only are displayed.


Interfaces to exclude: for example, these may be trunk ports that link devices and that may have a large number of MAC entries linked to them.

To exclude an interface you can enter an exact port name, or you can enter a regular expression that may evaluate to exclude a number of similarly named ports. An example of this might be "Giga|Serial" to remove any ports with the text "Giga" or "Serial" in their name.
