IP Address Management [aka IPAM] software helps IT systems admins track and manage the IP addresses in their computer networks.
IP Address Management (IPAM) is an essential part of Device42. With Device42’s comprehensive network auto-discovery, it’s never been easier to maintain up-to-date documentation of your IP Addresses, MAC Addresses, and DNS Infrastructure. In this section, we will cover VLAN, Subnet, IP Address, MAC Address, Switch Port Connectivity, and IP NATs.
Discovering IP Addresses
There are multiple ways Device42 can discover IP Addresses and related information:
- Network SNMP Discovery: Configuring and running SNMP auto-discovery to gather subnets, IP to MAC Address relationships, and MAC Address to Switch Port relationship information.
- Device42’s Auto Discovery: Using the auto-discovery client to discover Microsoft Windows and Linux and/or UNIX devices on your network, including their IP and MAC Address details.
- Device42’s Ping Sweep Tool: This page details usage of the ping sweep utility to keep your IP Address information up-to-date.
