What problems does it solve? OpUtils with its integrated set of 30+ tools that helps network engineers to effectively manage their IT infrastructure with the following:
- Map switch ports to devices: Switch Port Mapper helps network engineers identify the switch port to which a device is connected and thus elimirnates the need of manually tracing the network cables. The tool discovers the devices plugged into each port of a specified switch. The tool is useful for system and network engineers to gain visibility into the IP, MAC, VLAN, status and availability of ports. Since this is a real-time discovery, the administrators can also view the operational status and speed of each port.
- Manage IP Addresses: IP Address Manager (IPAM) tool helps network engineers to identify whether an IP Address is currently available or not, in an enterprise network. The IPAM tool periodically scans a subnet and provides the availability status of IP addresses in that subnet. One can check whether a particular IP is reserved or available. The tool accept multiple subnet inputs, which helps in scanning the entire network to get the status of the IP Addresses.
- Detect unauthorized network access: OpUtils periodically scans the routers and subnets to detect any new systems/devices found in the network. Initially it lists all the systems/devices discovered in the network. The Administrator has to verify and mark all the valid systems/devices in the network. During subsequent scans, if any new device/system is detected in the network, it get listed. This includes all types of devices like desktops/laptops (wired), mobile users (wireless), routers, switches, etc.
- Monitor bandwidth utilization of devices: Bandwidth Monitor tool provides the real-time network traffic of any SNMP device. It provides the bandwidth usage details both on at interface-level and at the device-level. It uses SNMP to fetch the bandwidth utilization details of a network interface. The bandwidth utilization of the device displays a comparison of the individual traffic of its interfaces.
- Monitor health and availability of critical devices
- Backing up configuration files of routers/switches: Routers/Switches often get upgraded or swapped out for a number of reasons. Hence it is important to maintain the latest and history of the router's/switch's configuration files. This tool helps to maintain the Starup and Runtime configuration files of the Cisco Router/Switch.
1. Diagnostic Tools: Oputils' diagnostic tools are used to check the availability, route and health of a system in a network using ICMP and SNMP. By drawing a graph with the available details, the tools show the status of a node. The tools also scan and check a range of IPs and come up with their status. Tools included in this category are:
- Ping – This tool is the graphic representation of the ICMP PING utility. It helps in discovery of the status of a network device, that is whether the device is alive or not. Before you ping a device you can configure the ping settings such as number of packets, time to live, size, and timeout.
- Ping Scan – Using this tool you can scan an entire range of IP Addresses to check their availability. The tool displays the IP Address, the response time, and the DNS name of the discovered device. This tool uses the basic PING function as a base to perform the scan.
- SNMP Ping – This tool checks whether a node is SNMP-enabled or not. It helps the network engineers know the availability of a device and provides basic information such as DNS name, system name, location, system type, and system description. Following the SNMP discovery, if required, more details of the node can be retrieved using SNMP Tools such as SNMP walker, MIB Browser and SNMP Graph
- SNMP Scan – Using this tool you can scan an entire range of IP Addresses using SNMP ping and check for their availability. The tool displays the IP address, response time, DNS name, system name, and system type.
- Proxy Ping – The Proxy ping tool enables you to ping a target device using a Cisco router. The router acts as the proxy for the target device and responds to the ping request.
- Trace Route – This tool records the route followed in the network between the sender’s computer and a specific destination computer. The user can configure the settings such as number of hops, and timeout.
2. Address Monitoring Tools: Address monitoring tools are used to manage IP Address, MAC address and DNS name of a network. Tools included in this category are:
- IP Address Manager – Using this tool, network engineers can identify whether an IP Address is currently available or not. The tool helps manage the IP addresses in a static DNS environment, using pre-defined user policy. The tool scans a subnet and provides the availability status of IP addresses in that subnet. One can check whether a particular IP is reserved or available. The tool accept multiple subnet inputs, which helps in scanning your entire network to get the status of the IP Addresses.
- Rogue Detection – When OpUtils detects a new MAC Address in the network either through periodic or manual scanning of subnets, the device gets added to this result as a rogue device. Initially, all the discovered MAC addresses will be shown here. The administrator has to verify the list and delete the valid devices. This is a one time configuration after scanning the entire network. Later on, if any new MAC address is found during the scanning process, it gets listed here.
- MAC Address Resolver – The tool can fetch the MAC Address for any SNMP-enabled node, with the provided IP Address. This tool also discovers the physical address of a device and maps it with the corresponding IP address. In addition to showing the MAC address, the tool also shows the SNMP availability, IP address, DNS name, port number, community, system type, and system description.
- MAC Address Scan – This tool scans a given range of IP Addresses and displays the MAC addresses for various devices available in the given range. The tool also displays the IP address, port number, community, MAC address, DNS name, system name, and system type.
- DHCP Scope Monitor – The tool fetches all the scopes that are defined in the DHCP Server and displays the total, used, and available IP Addresses in each scope. When the number of available IP addresses falls below a defined value, the display turns red to indicate the criticality.
- DNS Resolver – Network engineers can use this tool to quickly get the host name of any node whose IP Address is known and vice versa. It also shows details like the default netmask, network type, and the status for the forward and reverse lookups.
- DNS Scan – Using this tool one can scan a range of IP addresses to see whether the forward and reverse lookup actions are working fine for the devices. It also shows the response time. In cases where an IP is not used in the network, the tool prompts that the system does not exist in the network.
- MAC IP List - Provides a list of MAC Addresses and its corresponding IP Addresses and DNS names that are collected over a period.
3. Network Monitoring Tools: The Network Management toolset of the OpUtils software monitors network performance, calculates the bandwidth utilization, and scans the traffic for errors through SNMP. The tool also provides asset details such as the OS, installed software, and hardware and informs you about the general availability and performance of the network elements. Tools available under this category are:
- Switch Port Mapper – This helps network engineers identify the switch port to which a device is connected and thus eliminates the need of manually tracing the network cables. The tool discovers the devices plugged into each port of a specified switch. The tool is useful for system and network engineers to gain visibility into the IP, MAC, status and availability of ports. Since this is a real-time discovery you can also view the operational status and speed of each port. This tool maps switch ports to the devices connected to them.
- Bandwidth Monitor – This tool provides a graphical view of real-time traffic in a switch or router. The Tool is ideal for identifying bottlenecks related to bandwidth within the network. This tool monitors the average BPS and percentage utilization of all the interfaces existing in the specified device. The tool presents the output in a graphical form.
- Wake-On-LAN – This tool remotely 'wakes-up' a machine (boots-up a machine) that is present in the network but not alive. For the tool to work, the PC should be configured to accept the Wake-On-LAN remote command.
- Network Monitor – The tool continuously monitors the response time of multiple devices and generates e-mail alerts based on the severity. These alerts are set up at three different levels and show the different status of the nodes.
- System Details Update- This tool comes handy when the administrator has to update the system details, such as System Name, System Description, and System Location in a range of devices. The administrator can first scan a range of devices to view the existing details and then can modify as required and update them all at once.
- Port Scanner - This tool scans the given ports either in a range of IP Addresses or for a single IP to find the status of the scanned ports. The status of the ports can be either listening or not listening. You can associate the ports with the known services, which enables you to know the unknown/unwanted services running in the system.
- System Explorer –This tool will scan a SNMP-enabled device to get its complete details like system snapshot, CPU usage, Disk Space details, running processes, and installed software.
- TCP Reset – This tool lists all the TCP connections that are established in a device. The administrator can verify the connections and reset the unwanted/unauthorized connections from here.
4. Server Monitoring Tools: System Explorer can be used to monitor any desktop for CPU usage, hard disk usage, installed software, running processes, etc., through SNMP. This toolset also offers detailed information about the monitored device. System Explorer will provide the following details about a device:

6. SNMP Tools: It is common to have heterogeneous network environment hence the available tools in the OpUtils toolset might not be sufficient to monitor a wider range of devices. In such a scenario the SNMP toolset can be used to monitor such devices. The MIB database has a huge number of both private and standard vendor MIBs. Using tools such as SNMP walker, SNMP Graph and MIB browser one can monitor any SNMP device. Tools included in this category are:
- MIB Viewer – Many a times network engineers are aware of the MIB node (OID name) but not sure of the OID and its properties. In such situations this tool would be of great use. It accepts the node name or the OID as input and provides the complete information on the MIB node including MIB name, parent node name, OID, OID type, status, syntax, access, definition, and the next node. It also provides a snapshot of a given MIB, some general information on the MIB, the defined attributes, total number of nodes, defined TCs, and the defined traps.
- SNMP Walker – A utility to retrieve specified number of MIB objects value using SNMP GET-NEXT operation. Using this tool you can provide any OID value and query a device for the next consecutive OIDs.
- SNMP Table - A utility to retrieve the data for the specified Table OID from the device. Using this tool you can select any table component of a MIB to view the values.
- Trap Receiver – This tool listens for real-time network traps and displays them. The trap details, such as Trap OID, Source, Received Time, Varbind Descriptions, and so on, are shown. The tool can be configured to send an email alert on receipt of a trap.
- SNMP Graph – This SNMP tool gathers real-time data and draws a graph for any SNMP IP node. It also provides the MIB node information such as OID, syntax, description and MIB node properties.
- MIB Browser – The MIB Browser tool is a utility that enables you to load and browse MIBs and perform SNMP operations. With this tool, you can perform all SNMP-related operations such as GET, GET-NEXT, GET-BULK, and SET. The above SNMP operations can be performed on the specified agent.
- Community Checker – The Community Checker tools helps the administrators to identify the read and write SNMP communities of the SNMP-enabled devices in the network. This tools operates based on the standard and popular SNMP Community strings that are stored in the database. The administrator can add or edit the list to include all the community strings of the devices in their network.
