Hp switch search tool.
HP-search-MAC is an util that can query HP switches for their connection table. It then allow you to search for a MAC address and tell you where it is physically connected (best match first). . The functionality is similar to traceroute but on Ethernet level and only for HP switches.
hp-search-mac [options] [\s-1MAC\s0] [...]

Set a switch name to search. You can also set this in
/etc/hp-search-mac.conf or ~/.hp-search-mac.conf.
The hash to set is \%switches.
You can use some different formats:
ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff (hex) ff-ff-ff-ff-ff-ff (hex)
\%switches: This is a normal perl hash of the form \%switches = (\\*(L"host\\*(R" => \\*(L"community\\*(R", ...);
