Hello,

did you evaluate Procurve Manager? It is a commercial out-of-the-box Management solution for E series HP switches. It will bring you some nice features like:

- Monitoring of the devices
- showing utilization of the most utilized ports
- Alerting when devices will go down or exceeding traffic thresholds
- Collecting configuration files of the switches
- automated software updates
- automated VLAN configuration
...

Even having only 8 switches, it will make your life a little bit easier. You can evaluate all features in a 60 days trial version.

You can also get all your needed features in some open source tools (like scotty, cacti, MRTG, ..) but it will need some time for customizing.

Cheers,
