Schedule automated scans of your network on a regular basis

SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM) allows you to automatically scan a subnet—as frequently as every 10 minutes or as infrequently as every 7 days. Moreover, you can schedule each scan independently by subnet so your mobile subnets will always be updated without rescanning those subnets with mostly static IPs.

Scheduled IP address scanning also helps avoid IP address conflicts by recognizing transient IP status. For example, if a static IP goes offline during a maintenance update and is not reachable, SolarWinds IPAM will configure that IP as transient to prevent other network engineers from assigning it. You can configure the transient period for any number of consecutive days, up to a year. Upon a subsequent scan, if the network device returns online again, SolarWinds IPAM will simply show its associated status as "used."

You can easily modify a scheduled IP address scan to customize it for your particular scanning needs. SolarWinds IPAM also makes it easy to create your own scan job from scratch. Each job performs a scan of network devices based on subnet.

As part of the scheduled scan, SolarWinds IPAM’s indirect discovery provides more complete information on the status of IPs you’re managing. By identifying neighboring device ARP tables, SolarWinds IPAM provides IP status information, even when SNMP and ICMP are disabled or blocked.

  • Schedule IP address scanning to ensure your IP space is always updated
  • Select a scanning frequency anywhere between 10 minutes and 7 days
  • Choose a high frequency IP address scan for mobile subnets, while scanning less frequently for subnets with more static IPs
  • Preview your subnet scan status to see when the next scan will occur for each of your subnets
  • Configure ICMP and SNMP scan settings from an intuitive Web interface
  • Get IP status even when ICMP and SNMP are disabled

With its real-time subnet calculator, the SolarWinds IPAM Subnet Allocation Wizard allows you to quickly determine the most efficient way to subdivide any supernet.

The Subnet Allocation Wizard takes a supernet address, a Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR), and a desired subnet size and displays a list of available subnets. You can quickly choose from this interactive list to allocate new subnets on your network.

  • Specify your supernet, desired subnet size, and retrieve a list of possible subnets
