Network Device Scanning

with Network Performance Monitor


Fully functional for 30 days

You need an automated tool for periodic scans of your network devices and performance

Discover network devices

Without an automated tool, network device scanning is a manual and cumbersome process.

Map topology and performance metrics

Manually mapping your network topology can be time consuming and requires continuous updates.

Monitor availability and performance

Scan and poll device MIBS using SNMP monitoring to obtain fault, availability, and performance metrics.

Monitor, discover, map and scan your network devices

  1. Automatically discover and scan network devices

    SolarWinds network monitoring software is a network device scanner that uses SNMP to regularly discover devices on your network. This is especially beneficial in large and dynamic networks with equipment from multiple vendors. Simply provide the list of IP addresses, range, or subnet along with SNMP credentials and let Network Performance Monitor's Network Sonar Wizard automatically scan and discover the devices on your network. You can run a discovery once or schedule regular discoveries to identify newly added devices.

  2. Map network topology

    The larger and more dynamic the network, the more difficult it is to keep an up-to-date network topology map. Once you've discovered the devices in your network with SolarWinds network device scanner, you can easily create custom dynamic network maps. SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor allows you to easily display device performance metrics so you can visualize the performance of your network.

Network Device Scanner definition

A network device scanner uses simple network management protocol (SNMP) to scan a network for connected devices. This allows you to conduct discovery and mapping, and fault, availability, and performance monitoring

SolarWinds greatly helps us ensure that potential network issues are resolved before they affect service delivery which goes a long way to justifying the investment."
