Network Device Monitor

Network Monitoring Made Free & Easy!

Your network devices are constantly under threats to their performance and availability. What if you could shield your network devices so they could perform their duties uninterrupted?

Network Device Monitor is a free tool that makes it easy to monitor the real-time performance and health of a single device on your network with a desktop dashboard that alerts you when your device is in trouble.

Regardless of whether you need to protect the performance of your core router, a critical Cisco® ASA, or your favorite HP Procurve® switch, Network Device Monitor can help. With this free network monitoring tool by your side, you can quickly and easily create a custom monitoring template for your chosen network device and then share it with your fellow IT geeks on thwack, SolarWinds online community. Or, simply browse the extensive library of network device monitoring templates to see if someone has already done the work for you! There are hundreds of existing monitors to choose from, making it easy to get started.

But maybe you want to go even further with your monitoring measures and want to monitor a little-known OID to track statistics like temperature, fan speed, or battery status. Our free Network Device Monitor has a built-in custom MIB compiler, which enables you to monitor virtually any statistic that an SNMP-enabled network device records. If you’ve got the MIB, Network Device Monitor makes it easy to compile, so that you can start monitoring immediately.
