We are trying to build something with the APIs for a client who wants to have custom dashboards for some users on their team. They basically want to include tracking of electrical consumption on every network (Ethernet power details, power rate over time, and consumption on the devices per network)
I've checked the API docs but couldn't find anything clear and so I was hoping to learn if anyone has had experience with pulling this type of info out through the APIs.
Thanks for the shout out @Inderdeep I am actually quite novice with the API, but interested and have spent some time browsing and learning from https://meraki.io Not trying to tell you to just "go figure it out yourself", but if you have not used the API at all it is a good place to start to understand the capabilities and start to plan how you would put something together to pull data you want.
Yeah the motive is to help everyone, if we can because sometime people dont know from where to start as many times with me as a case, a quick indication makes as a reference point and leads to get the idea of doing the things in better way. I did uses APIs but never worked this kind of report pulling.. : )
We gather this for customer reporting to show daily switch PoE maximum vs. switch PoE budget (needs a manual lookup table of budget for each model), used/free ports are also tracked plus warnings and errors.
In our case this is for capacity planning rather than tracking consumption over time, for that you'd need to sample shorter periods.
