Speed Up CatOS mac address discovery
« on: January 31, 2010, 01:39:41 PM »
As it took more than 8 hours to discover one of our networks that has a lot of
CatOS systems in it, I have tried some things to speed up.
My solution is to do the mac address collection via telnet/ssh as it is done for IOS.
This drops down the discovery time to 3 hours  ;D

I have attached a diff with my changes (also includes a little bug fix for Net:SSH protocol selection).
This patch was originally for version 1.0, but I have adopted it to 1.0.5.
Be aware that I have only tested it with 1.0
Use it at your own risk  :)

I removed CatOs support a while ago (EOL OS?). Could have been a mistake. Will look at it, thanks
