Pls advice which is best interface which i can use to get in XML data about all the switches in the fabric.

Is there any way where i can send XML request to the switch and get back XML response for switch and fabric information

Re: Need to collect fabric and switch information.

Thanks for your reply. I just  want to connect directly to the switch in the fabric. I don't want to connect to a SMI agent. Because I need to install SMI agent on a separate host and then configure agent to connect to switch inorder to collect the data from SMI agnet.

is there any way i can get the data direcltly from the switch. Is there is any XML api where i can send xml request and get back XML response.

I'm sorry but I don't know another way or Software in order to collect/send XML file from/to the switch.

SMI-Agent is available for Donwload here.
