These are the questions asked during IP Address and Switch Port Monitoring Training
Is this application capable of capturing new added devices to the network?Yes, If a new IP address(device) is added into your subnet which is currently being monitored within application. With a new scan of the subnet, respective device will be added into application.
Our wifi is not secure for the internal staffs & guests in our office. so if they connected through wifi, how can we monitor those devices, without knowing ip address of that deviceYou can achieve this with two ways. One directly adding a DHCP server into monitoring which will allow the application get it hands on details of the subnet and device's ip address with the help of its scope. Another way is to add a seed router or switch in your network which will allow OpUtils to fetch corresponding IP address and subnet details.
What are Rogue IP addresses and how to deal with them?Rogue Detection tool of OpUtils software helps in detecting unauthorized access of network resources. The tool scans your routers, subnets, switches, gateway servers, etc., periodically and detects the wireless / wired rogue systems, devices, Access Points, and more.
Does transient mean that there was a device connected with that IP at some time in the past but is not currently connected?Transient means the device is connected to a specific IP only for a period of fixed time.
can i install OpUtils on the same windows with OpManager?You can enable the IPAM module in OpManager.
Can IPAM give a list of all free ip addresses available within a subnet?Yes, IPAM will list the all the free IPs.
Can I manage my switch through ssh or telnet?We use SNMP only and support both v2 and v3.
In the Port Mapper Switch, is it possible to filter by Physical Location?We have global search which we can use to search using syslocation.
Can I active Rogue Detection on OpManager?IPAM add-on in OpManager has Rogue detection
Can guest user prompt for login to network, like user ID and password provided by network admin for temp access?This is not possible with OpUtils. We cannot manage guest user access.
Can Rogue devices be blocked by default? and once it added to trusted then it can have access to network?No, The rogue devices cannot be blocked automatically.You can block them manually provided you have the Write SNMP community string. Yes, you will be able to have the access once trusted.
Can we install OpUtils in KVM/QEMU guest? Yes, you can install.
Can we get alert is available ip get into used state via email?Yes, we can get alerts.
Is switch port mapper is in free edition of OptUtils? It is licenced based on number of used ports.
Is Rouge device detection available in free edition? Yes,You can manage only one switch and one subnet (i.e) You can monitor 50 ports or 1 device in free edition.
Is bandwidth monitor is in free edition? Yes, Limited by number of interfaces
Is this a separate product from OpManager? OpUtils in one of add-on module in OpManager. We also have a standalone version for OpUtils.
Is it possible to manage unmanaged switches ports?Yes, it is possible.
Sometime my users says that they have slow connection (LAN/WiFI), it may be because of unmanaged switch issues. Is it possible to trace such issues?We can check the bandwidth utilization using OpUtils and whenever a device goes down we can get alerts from OpManager. So with these data we address the issue.
What bandwidth is this ? network trace between linux servers?These are network device's interface bandwidth (Packet in/out, speed, utilization).
what specific config files? any file with extension .conf ? Only cisco device running or startup config file.
when we go to IP Manager we see most of the IP 's are in transient status, why? It means the IPs are in down state(Transient). If it is down for more than 10 days(configured value) it will changed to available.
what is the realtime usage for opUtils?you can do Capacity planning of IPAM, Get connected details of ip addresses, Connected IPs of Ports, Bandwidth usage, Cisco config backups, Uploads and etc.
Oputils is only for Network devices monitoring ? Does it monitor linux server cpu and memory utilization? For monitoring linux device's cpu and disk we have to use OpManager. For this you can use OpManager. If you are interested then i will ask our team to schedule a demo at your convenient time
Does this support automatic restarts of application services in linux servers? does this also support on demand restart? Service monitoring and restart is possible in OpManager and not in OpUtils. In OpManager we have a feature called a workflow to restart the server.
