OpUtils – Network Management Tools
The Network Management toolset of the OpUtils software monitors network performance, calculates the bandwidth utilization, and scans the traffic for errors through SNMP. The tool also provides asset details such as the OS, installed software, and hardware and informs you about the general availability and performance of the network elements.
Tools available under this category are:
Switch Port Mapper This helps network engineers identify the switch port to which a device is connected and thus eliminates the need of manually tracing the network cables. The tool discovers the devices plugged into each port of a specified switch. The tool is useful for system and network engineers to gain visibility into the IP, MAC, status and availability of ports. Since this is a real-time discovery you can also view the operational status and speed of each port. This tool maps switch ports to the devices connected to them.
Bandwidth Monitor This tool provides a graphical view of real-time traffic in a switch or router. The Tool is ideal for identifying bottlenecks related to bandwidth within the network. This tool monitors the average BPS and percentage utilization of all the interfaces existing in the specified device. The tool presents the output in a graphical form.
Wake-On-LAN This tool remotely ‘wakes-up’ a machine (boots-up a machine) that is present in the network but not alive. For the tool to work, the PC should be configured to accept the Wake-On-LAN remote command.
Network Monitor The tool continuously monitors the response time of multiple devices and generates e-mail alerts based on the severity. These alerts are set up at three different levels and show the different status of the nodes.
System Details Update- This tool comes handy when the administrator has to update the system details, such as System Name, System Description, and System Location in a range of devices. The administrator can first scan a range of devices to view the existing details and then can modify as required and update them all at once.
Port Scanner – This tool scans the given ports either in a range of IP Addresses or for a single IP to find the status of the scanned ports. The status of the ports can be either listening or not listening. You can associate the ports with the known services, which enables you to know the unknown/unwanted services running in the system.
System Explorer This tool will scan a SNMP-enabled device to get its complete details like system snapshot, CPU usage, Disk Space details, running processes, and installed software.
