I don't mean to be rude, but since you haven't provided us any information about your network, whether this is an SME network, SOHO network, or a private small network, it's is very difficult to give you a fitting solution.
I would hence request that you search the Internet using Google. There are thousands if not more products that allow you to monitor and / or manage your networks. They all come in various price ranges; from free-ware to really expensive Enterprise management software.

Here are a couple of links that may be of help to you:   (Products)    (Vendor Papers)

Hope this helps. Comments/ Suggestions/ Corrections are welcome.
