Network Mapping Software
 

Network Mapping Software


InterMapper provides a real-time view of your network. Visualize your network in a way that helps you monitor to meet your organization's needs.

Live Mapping with Auto-Discovery

Live mapping

Auto-discover your entire network

InterMapper has the power to auto-discover every device on your network, as long as it has an IP address. This ensures that every device is accounted for, and eliminates the need to manually enter device information. Automatically import devices and begin creating maps of your network in minutes, not days or weeks.

Visual Traffic Flow

A living diagram of your network

InterMapper’s network mapping software bring your network to life, presenting real-time views of your network’s health. Color-coded icons indicate the severity level of routers, switches, servers, workstations, and more. InterMapper provides total visibility into your network status at a glance:

Color coding shows network health

The color scheme for an icon’s status uses yellow, orange, red, and flashing red to represent warning, alarm, critical, and down states, respectively. These states are set when a probe determines that the device has exceeded a threshold. If you acknowledge the device, the icon will turn blue and stop further notification. Green indicates a normally functioning device.

Traffic statistics shown automatically

InterMapper network traffic flow monitoring retrieves traffic and error rate statistics from devices that speak SNMP. If the traffic exceeds certain thresholds, InterMapper draws animated traffic indicators (our customers call these “the ants”) on your diagram beside the links interconnecting the devices. Traffic above 50% or 90% has a yellow or orange background (a “halo”) behind the link to make high traffic easily visible.

Sub-maps

Our network mapping software allows you to create sub-maps, which display a hierarchical view of your network. A sub-map displays detailed information about a part of your network: a geographic region, a building, the network backbone, etc. You can then make a top-level map that includes icons of all sub-maps. Features of sub-maps include:

Network documentation

InterMapper network traffic monitoring and reporting provides live, up-to-date documentation for your network. InterMapper’s Layer 3 auto-discovery tool determines the router interfaces on your network and makes the right connections on the map. InterMapper also continually checks for new interfaces to add to the map. Once you have a map set up, you can use it for day-to-day management, always armed with an accurate picture of the most recent state of your network to help with troubleshooting.

Google Earth integration

InterMapper displays information about your network as a layer or a place in Google Earth. The devices and links from an InterMapper map will be superimposed on the background of the Google Earth application. This makes it easy for non-technicians to view the network status with an attractive backdrop in the Google Earth window.

Gallery of customer maps

Our customers have provided screen shots for a number of maps to show how they’re using InterMapper. You can look through the possibilities at the Map Gallery.

Layer 2/3 Interconnections

Network mapping of physical connections

The Layer 2 module enables auto-discovery and connection of devices to the correct switch port. These Layer 2 links ensure your maps provide complete information about interconnections in your network. It has always been challenging to reliably document where equipment is connected to a switch given the growing use of wireless devices and VLANs. InterMapper combines information gained from Layer 2 and 3 to give you the confidence that your map is accurate.

With this powerful tool, you can:

Features and benefits

Fully integrated with InterMapper, Layer 2 gives you a granular view of your equipment connections, enabling significant improvements in network management. Click to see the features and benefits of Layer 2 views.

Use cases

Learn how to get the most out of Layer 2. The following use cases demonstrate the value of the increased visibility available with Layer 2:

Hierarchical Maps

hierarchical maps

Hierarchical maps give users the ability to view the network in varying levels of detail. Create sub-maps of the network by geographic region, state, metropolitan area or LAN view.

Each sub-map offers real-time data on the status of your network, including statistics on traffic and overall health. With hierarchical maps, you can:

Geographic and Physical Maps

geographic and physical maps

Create a detailed view of your network

InterMapper’s geographical and physical maps integrate seamlessly with Google Maps and Google Earth, as well as digital floor plans and blueprints. Create customized maps to view your network however you like. Using geographical and physical maps, you can quickly identify the physical location of a problematic device.

With just a glance at your maps, you can determine that:
