IPAM plug-in helps you identify whether an IP Address is currently available or not, in an enterprise network. The IPAM plug-in periodically scans a subnet and provides the availability status of IP addresses in that subnet. This helps you identify whether a particular IP is reserved or available. The plug-in accepts multiple subnet inputs, which helps in scanning the entire network to get the status of the IP Addresses.
The IPAM plug-in also includes Switch Port Mapper that helps you identify the switch port to which a device is connected and thus eliminates the need of manually tracing the network cables. The switch port mapper discovers the devices plugged into each port of a specified switch. This gives you the visibility into the IP, MAC, VLAN, status and availability of ports. Since this is a real-time discovery, you can also view the operational status and speed of each port.
