Hi Experts,
I have a medium network with 200 office employees.The network is kind of messy right now( I recently take over the network last 2 weeks). The network is going thru many unnecessary hops. I'm looking for a software that I can plug into my mirror port and then can draw out a map for me. I really appreciate  your suggestions otherwise thanks for reading.

Hi,

You also can try vendor tools. If you are using cisco and HP go to their web sites and search for network management programs. For example HP have Pro Curve Manager Plus.
It is so usefull for network map and device configuration.

If you are using cisco, you could run show cdp neighbor to determine what everything is plugged into.
