R: managment application for switches/SNMP

for configuration maybe you should look at Ziptie (have not tested deeply, but it seems quite good at configuration 

Personally, I prefer to configure ports by hand.

But I use a wonderful OSS tool - netdisco - to discover both devices and end nodes; just SNMP needed.
It can fetch mac, arp, and cdp (or lldp) info from devices, and correlate it, so you can see how the devices are 
interconnected, and where every single node is.
Furthermore, if you configure a read-write community, you could also enable/disable ports via a web intrerface.

For performance, I'd suggest NMIS (but, since I am one of the developers, I can't be that impartial).

have at a 
client, I am looking for a managment application (open source which 
will show closed ports on each switch, will be able to 
configure the 
switches etc.. I know that there is Nagios but im looking  for 
something simpler, I hope its exists.

Thanks a lot,
