How to map a network......software, tips?

Hi all,

I have been left a total network mess, the last fellow in my position has left prior to my start date and effectively there is no network discovery being done.
I need to find out what IP addresses are in use, and what subnets are configured on each VLAN, etc.

The network is mostly cisco gear. Any tips or suggestions would be most welcome.

Get the 30-day eval of Orion and the Engineers toolset. You'll want to buy a fully licensed version. It'll do discovery, map your switchports, monitor, document, etc.
Else try What'sUP from http://www.ipswitch.com

I like the interface of Netcrunch:

Argus Sofware (looks just like What's UP Gold, only for Linux - and free)

Manage Engine by OpManager (can restart services on Windows servers)
