For any network admin, manually scanning and maintaining IP addresses can be a challenging task. With the ever growing IP address space and the enterprise opting for dynamic IP allocation, having an IP Address Tracker (IPAT) is more essential than ever.
An IP address tracker software automates IP address scanning and management, which means no more managing IP availability on a spreadsheet. This saves both time and effort in IP address space monitoring, fostering efficient network management.
Network admins often dismiss the need for an advanced IP address Scanner and instead use native commands for IP address scanning. Native commands do allow a network admin to scan for IP addresses and find their associated MAC address in a network; however, this technique works best for a small-scale network such as your home network. For large-scale networks, having to manually track IP addresses is a complex task.
Using an effective software tool for IP address tracking goes a long way in managing an extensive IP address space for enterprise-level networks. ManageEngine OpUtils comes loaded with a powerful set of tools that aids in real-time discovery, diagnosis, troubleshooting, and maintenance of a network. OpUtils' IP Address Manager is the best of its kind for enterprises and eliminates the need to track IP addresses manually.
More and more networks are relying on IPv6. OpUtils' IP Address Manager supports both IPv4 and IPv6. Add the global prefix to the IPv6 address space to start discovering IPv6 addresses.
OpUtils automates the process of tracking IP status. It displays the IP availability status such as the number of IPs that are Available, Transient, or Used to network admins.
OpUtils' IP Address Manager eliminates the need to physically track ports to switches with its Switch Port Mapper. This feature shows network admins the switches in the network and ports that are associated with it. Upon clicking on an IP address, network admin can view details about connected switch ports.
The various subnets in the network can be managed by adding each one of them to OpUtils' IP Address Manager. This displays the available subnets in a tree-based hierarchy, allowing you to perform cross subnet scanning, collective analysis of IP address performance, and more.
