The NetView data collector can be set up to collect data on MIB variables
from any MIB that you load. So you need to:
- make sure your particular switches support the Fore switch MIB
- load the Fore switch MIB into NetView
- set up data collection on appropriate MIB variables. (The Fore switch MIB
has counters for transmitted cells by board, module, port, VPI, VCI)
- calculate usage metrics from the MIB variable values you collect.

Sorry, I am not familar with this product. But you could use NetView to do
SNMP Gets on your nodes and get the information.
