Hello experts

Have any if you used Intermapper? If so can you tell me your experiences with it?

Also if you have any recommendations of alternative network management tools that would be great.

Cheers

Carlton

They are essentially a Linux based router that can be configured for *almost* anything.
you can buy a pre-build SBC that has multiple interfaces. or install on a custom x86 box.

they also have a product called "The Dude" completely free to use, install on Windows, or on a routerboard using the dude package

Will discover a entire network monitor equipment running RouterOS or SNMP

Used this hardware for years, some of has had the hardest life, installed inside weather resistant boxes 40m up a tower, days get to 40*c in summer here, still working after several years.

so enable SNMP on your cisco/juniper

only do read only community strings then configure the dude to use that community string in the dudes options menu

Click the Settings Button
then go to the SNMP tab

Configure your new community string in there. I usually change the V1 and V2 public to the new string and use it as the default.

Then from within a detected device right click the link between it and a switch, click settings make sure the device at the top is correct, change the metering type to snmp then your interface list should populate

Choose the correct interface for that link click ok and you will get a link utilisation appear, hover over to see historical graphs.

What else are you hoping to accomplish with the dude, ive used it before to monitor a cisco aironet ap network, showing realitime connected clients etc...

could help with any configuration.
