Editor's review

A set of tools for network engineering applications, including network discovery, troubleshooting and diagnostics tools.

Features: SolarWinds Engineers Toolset is a set of tools designed with the needs of a network engineer in mind. The tools come in four main varieties: network monitoring tools; network discovery tools; diagnostic tools; and Cisco tools. The network discovery tools includes: an IP Network browser to perform IP and SNMP based network discovery; a Network Sonar, to produce a detailed inventory on devices and generate reports; a MAC Address discovery module to scan subnets and construct tables IP addresses to MAC addresses, their DNS and also manufacturer information; a Subnet list utility to discover all subnets on the current network; an SNMP sweep utility to query IP addresses in range to locate all used and unused IP addresses; a DNS audit tool; PING and PING sweep (which PINGs each and every IP address on the network to check for connectivity); a Port Scanner; a Switch Port Mapper; DNS / WHOIS resolver; and an advanced subnet calculator. Monitoring tools include: Network Performance Monitor; bandwidth gauge; SNMP real-time graph; real-time interface monitor; Advanced CPU load monitor and CPU gauges; Watch It that monitors and alerts on the availability of critical network devices; syslog server; and a DHCP scope monitor. Diagnostic tools include: Enhanced PING and Proxy PING in addition to the PING utilities already mentioned as part of network discovery tools; DNS analyzer that helps to visualize the DNS hierarchy within the IP domain(s); traceroute; Spam blacklist; WAN killer, aimed at generating enough traffic to carry out stress tests on the WAN; Wake-On-LAN, to remotely power-on computers on the network; SNMP brute force attack and SNMP dictionary attack; SNMP MIB browser, MIB viewer; MIB walk which is a utility to discover and produce reports detailing which MIBs and OIDs are supported on each device; and SNMP Trap Receiver and Editor. Cisco tools include numerous utilities for managing NetFlow, Config, remotely as well as a Proxy PING, Router CPU load monitor, Router password decryption utility, and a TFTP server.

Overall: The tool should rightfully be called a Network Engineer’s Toolset because these are all valuable tools for the Network Engineer. Too expensive to be of use to the network enthusiast who has to rely instead on public domain, open source, or freeware tools.

Publisher's description

We're network engineers just like you, so we know what you face everyday: new network issues that emerge from nowhere, never enough time to troubleshoot, and a highly complex network composed of thousands of devices that seems to have a mind of its own. For over ten years, our goal has been to make sure that you have the right tools to easily and effectively manage and troubleshoot your network - in one complete and affordable package.
Once you've experienced Engineer's Toolset, you'll never troubleshoot your network the same way again. It includes a collection of powerful network management tools, all of which can be easily accessed through an innovative Workspace Studio to quickly resolve issues right from your desktop.
With the Workspace Studio, you can organize your tools to tackle troubleshooting challenges and then recall that workspace with a click when you need it - saving valuable set-up time. And shared credential management saves even more time as you switch easily between the tools you need without re-entering credentials.
Fire up Engineer's Toolset on your workstation and get out of the wiring closet. Take control of your day and your network with powerful, timesaving features, including:
*Cut troubleshooting time in half using the Workspace Studio, which puts the tools you need for common situations at your fingertips.
*Monitor and alert in real time on network availability and health with tools including Real-Time Interface Monitor, SNMP Real-Time Graph, and Advanced CPU Load.
*Perform robust network diagnostics for troubleshooting and quickly resolving complex network issues with tools such as Ping Sweep, DNS Analyzer, and Trace Route.
*Deploy an array of network discovery tools including Port Scanner, Switch Port Mapper, and Advanced Subnet Calculator.
