The Address monitoring utilities is a suite of IP tools including the IP address monitoring tools, rogue detection tools, and MAC address resolvers, for day-to-day monitoring and management of DNS names, IP and MAC addresses. Address monitoring tools are used in IP Monitoring, like to manage DNS name, IP and MAC address of a network.
OpUtils is a Switch port and IP address management software that helps network engineers manage their switches and IP's with ease. Businesses increasingly rely on their networks and resources for basic operations. ManageEngine OpUtils with its suite of 30+ IP tools, addresses the need of network engineers for troubleshooting connectivity issues and on-demand monitoring of the network. These effective network tools offer comprehensive network monitoring functionalities like IP monitor that provides manual and scheduled IP address monitoring of the network address space, and more.
ManageEngine OpUtils provides the following utilities for performing address monitoring operations.
Using Network IP Address Monitoring, network engineers can identify whether an IP address is currently available or not. The IP address monitoring software helps to manage the IP addresses in a static DNS environment, using pre-defined user policy. The IP address monitor tool helps in monitoring IP's by scanning a subnet and provides the availability status of IP addresses on that subnet. One can check whether a particular IP is reserved or available. The IP address monitoring tool accept multiple subnet inputs, which helps in scanning your entire network to get the status of the IP addresses. Also, IP Address Monitor provides you comprehensive insights into the performance metrics and utilization of each subnet and helps you in tracking and monitoring IP address. You can navigate through the agile tree-based hierarchy of IP subnets using IP Address Monitor, to view the availability and status of IP addresses in each subnet Know more»
When OpUtils’ IP Monitoring Software enables periodic or manual scanning of subnets and IP address space to monitor IP address and detect a new MAC address in the network. Any suspicious device gets added to this result as a rogue device. Initially, all the discovered MAC addresses will be shown here. The administrator has to verify the list and delete the valid devices. This is a one-time configuration after scanning the entire network. Later on, if any new MAC address is found during the scanning process, it gets listed here.
OpUtils Network IP Address Monitoring Tools periodically scans the routers and subnets to detect any new systems/devices found in the network. Initially it lists all the systems/devices discovered in the network. The Administrator has to verify and mark all the valid systems/devices in the network. Know more»
The MAC address resolver can fetch the MAC address for any SNMP-enabled node, with the provided IP address. You can drill down to the device specific details of the IPs discovered by the IP Address Monitor. This MAC address monitoring tool also discovers the physical address of a device and maps it with the corresponding IP address. In addition to showing the MAC address, the tool also shows the SNMP availability, IP address, DNS name, port number, community, system type, and system description.
The DHCP scope monitor, which is a type of IP address monitoring tool fetches all the scopes that are defined in the DHCP server and displays the total (used and available) IP addresses in each scope. When the number of available IP addresses falls below a defined value, the display turns red to indicate the criticality.
OpUtils’ IP address monitoring enables broadcasting of periodical queries to the routers and subnets defined in the Router settings and collects the information, such as MAC Address, IP Address, type and DNS Name of the devices and stores it in the database. The data is also updated whenever a scan is performed for a given IP range. This data is presented in the form of a table showing the details of the collected information along with the time at which the data was updated.
Network engineers can use DNS resolver to quickly get the host name of any node whose IP address is known and vice versa. This IP address monitoring software also shows details like the default net mask, network type and the status for the forward and reverse lookups.
With the DNS scan tool, one can scan a range of IP addresses using the OpUtils’ IP address monitor to see whether the forward and reverse lookup actions are working fine for the devices. It also shows the response time. In cases where an IP is not used in the network, the monitoring IP address tool prompts that the system does not exist in the network.
OpUtils Address monitoring tools helps you in efficiently monitoring IP address and MAC address of your network address space.
