Network Topology Mapper:Resources


Finally, you can put down your whiteboard markers and relax while SolarWinds® Network Topology Mapper (NTM) does the network mapping for you. Leveraging a unique multi-layer discovery technique, Network Topology Mapper automatically discovers your LAN or WAN and produces comprehensive, easy-to-view network diagrams that integrate OSI Layer 2 and Layer 3 topology data (including switch-to-switch, switch-to-node, and switch-to-router port connections). With two mouse clicks, this data can be exported into Microsoft Office® Visio® and easily shared with your colleagues.

Q: How is Network Topology Mapper licensed?
A:  Network Topology Mapper can be installed on a single machine to provide unlimited mapping. This means that Network Topology Mapper can be installed on a laptop computer and used at any number of sites for mapping and management purposes.
Q: How do I upgrade the demo version of Network Topology Mapper to the licensed version?
A:  To upgrade to the licensed version of Network Topology Mapper, simply click the ‘Buy Now’ button in the NTM console. This simply unlocks the full feature set of NTM and makes no configuration changes to your software.
Q: What are the limitations with the free Network Topology Mapper evaluation version?
A:  Export/Import & Saving functions are disabled (except export to Visio – this is enabled with restrictions). 70% of the nodes discovered during the network scanning phase will display as ‘Evaluation Nodes’ on NTM maps. Right clicking on an Evaluation Nodes will display node information.
