We are a small Liberal Arts College with 3,100 students and include faculty 
and staff have about 5,000 network ports, all on 3Com gear.

We are trying to find an application that will try and meet these needs via a 
web browser so it can be checked while we are not in the office:

1.  Notification (email) of usage above threshold
2.  Find the end network port that a MAC or IP addresses is on
3.  Notification (email) of down devices
4.  Top usage/Errors accross the network at this time
5.  Turn off ports (Automatically on threshold violation)
6.  Reports/History of gathered stats
7.  Location of Bridge Loops (Yes I know this is a hard one)
8.  Turn off ports (manually by web browser)
