Before the network devices can be displayed as endpoints in baramundi Management Suite, the network environment must first be scanned. In accordance with defined IP ranges and SNMP rule sets, the baramundi Network Devices module scans the network for devices that support versions 1, 2c, or 3 of the SNMP. Devices include routers, switches, and printers.
Features Network Devices
Detection rules use an established logic to define how the type of network device is identified. They also determine which values should be read and imported into the database for this type of network device. The rules can be nested as many times as required using operators, comparisons, and checks in order to specify individual devices more precisely and to read additional values. A standard rule set is available for download in the baramundi Management Suite. This rule set defines the commonest network devices and can be adapted to include additional rules and values. PowerShell scripts can be used to define very specific rules.
After the network scan has been performed, found devices are displayed in logical groupings. They can optionally be rearranged into specific subgroups. The endpoints can be displayed as an IT map in the environment view. This shows connections between different devices and presents detailed information about individual network devices, and therefore provides IT administrators with a comprehensive overview of the network topology.
