SolarWinds User Device Tracker (UDT) gives you the ability to monitor your network so that you know exactly what users, devices, and ports are doing at any given time and it helps you keep on top of port usage and capacity.
SolarWinds UDT lets you see where exactly users are connected as well as your network capacity. At regular intervals, SolarWinds UDT polls routers and switches for data about who is connected to them and organizes both the current and historical data. The software also sends you alerts and reports about which users are connected to your network.
SolarWinds UDT reports on how many ports are used on switches currently, as well as over time, so you can better understand your network’s capacity and the true utilization of the ports on your switches.
When discovering and adding network devices, SolarWinds User Device Tracker (UDT) first adds the network devices that you want to monitor, and then adds the specific ports on those devices that you want to monitor.
Add Devices - SolarWinds UDT employs multiple methods to add devices, and the recommended method depends on how many devices you want to add. Upon installation, SolarWinds UDT takes you to the Network Sonar Discovery Wizard.
Add Multiple Devices (Network Sonar Discovery) - SolarWinds UDT uses a Network Sonar Discovery Wizard to help you discover devices on your network. The Network Sonar Discovery Wizard recognizes network devices that are already in your SolarWinds database and prevents you from importing these devices again.
Add a Single Device (Node) - Use the ADD A SINGLE DEVICE option in Discovery Central if you only need to add a one device.
Add Ports - After you have discovered network devices, use the DISCOVER MY PORTS option in Discovery Central to discover and add ports.
