ManageEngine OpUtils' IP address tracker is capable of tracking all your IP addresses in real time. This comprehensive IP address tracker helps you remove the hurdles in subnet management by aiding you to add, manage, and track IPv4 and IPv6 subnets with ease.
Enabling route aggregation in your network? With OpUtils' IP address tracker, you can simplify this task by adding and monitoring supernets and their associated subnets from a centralized console. To further simplify the IP tracking task, the hierarchical Tree View in OpUtils' IP Address Manager allows you to group and track different subnets and supernets as needed. Along with this, the Donut View enables you to track your IPs based on their networking aspects such as DNS status and NIC Type.
An important requirement for tracking IP addresses is to understand how and by who an IP is being used. This helps in various networking tasks such as capacity planning and enhancing network security.
OpUtils offers you in-depth IP address tracking by scanning your IP address space using different network protocols, including ICMP and SNMP. This enables you to track crucial IP details such as IP utilization status, associated MAC address, device type, forward and reverse lookup status, and connected switch port details.
OpUtils also displays an IP snapshot that contains details on the IP's location, interface ID, system description, and more. Along with this real-time data, you can track historical IP usage and analyze the utilization trends with the IP History feature and the various IP Address Manager reports available.
While relying on spreadsheets and CLI commands for IP address tracking, detecting serious issues such as IP conflicts is impossible unless reported by the end user. An IP conflict can easily cascade into costly network downtime if not acted upon at the right time. This requires a reliable IP address tracker tool to be deployed in the network to stay ahead of IP conflicts. The real-time IP monitoring capability of OpUtils' IP address tracker helps you stay ahead of such issues by enabling proactive IP address conflict detection. By continually tracking your IP address space, it can easily detect and alert users on duplicate IP addresses in the network.
Using the conflict details displayed by the IP conflict alert messages and the built-in IP tools, you can easily resolve IP conflicts before they cause a critical network issue. Also, with the IP address tracker you can dig deep into details such as the connected devices, their switch ports, the other devices connected to the port, and so on. Thus the IP tracking software along with the IP tools offered by OpUtils, helps you easily carry out day-to-day IP related tasks from a centralized console.

An IP address tracking tool is a network utility that allows you to scan, track, and get the details such as the MAC and interface ID of an IP address. IP tracking solutions collects these details by using different network scanning protocols to inspect your network address space. Some advanced IP address tracker software such as OpUtils offers in-depth insights into tracked IPs. This includes, the IP's networking attributes, connected switch ports, system location, and more.
Traditionally, network admins have been relying on native commands and spreadsheets to track IP addresses. Native commands do allow a network admin to scan for IPs and find their associated MAC address in a network; however, this technique works best for a small-scale network such as IP address tracking in your home network.
For large-scale networks, having to manually track IP addresses is a complex task. As networks scale across a number of subnets, manual IP address tracking becomes impractical due to the limited capabilities of native commands. IP address tracker software provides complete visibility into your network IP address space with enhanced scanning and real-time IP address tracking. Integrating with an IP scanner offers you real-time insights into the status of IP addresses. This is not possible with generic tools and native OS commands.
The challenges faced when not using an IP address tracking tool
Tracking your network's IP address space requires an IP address management solution like OpUtils. This IP address tracker tool relies on different strategies such as network scanning and discovery to identify various data related to the tracked IP addresses. To start tracking IP addresses, you need to first discover and add your network's IP address space to the IP address tracker tool. This can be done in OpUtils IP address tracker by:
Once discovered, OpUtils automatically tracks your IPs and displays their statuses in the console.
With IP Address Tracker tool, finding all the IP addresses in your network becomes hassle free. You can find all the monitored IP addresses in your network, you can try any of the below given capabilities of OpUtils' IP address tracker.
OpUtils' IP address tracker tool uses different network protocols and scanning methods to ensure that it displays the accurate, real-time status of the discovered IP addresses.
