Now with the help of Solarwinds company you can relax while SolarWinds Network Topology Mapper (SolarWinds NTM License) does the network mapping for you. Using a unique discovery technique that works in all network layers, Network Topology Mapper automatically discovers your LAN or WAN and creates comprehensive, easy-to-view network diagrams that integrate OSI Layer 2 and Layer 3 topology data (including switch-to-switch, switch-to-node and switch-to-router port connections). With two mouse clicks, this data can be exported to Microsoft Office Visio and easily shared with your colleagues.

Solarwinds NTM key features
Auto Discovery and Detailed Mapping
Network Topology Mapper automatically discovers your entire network and creates comprehensive and detailed network maps in just minutes. You can also edit map object node details and connect network devices manually.
Export Maps to Popular Formats
This licensed solution exports network maps to Microsoft Office Visio, PDF, and PNG formats and also plans to export updated maps to Orion Network Atlas.
Network Regulatory Compliance
Network Topology Mapper lets you directly address PCI compliance and other regulations that require maintaining an up-to-date network diagram. Network Topology Mapper is also FIPS 140-2 compliant.
Multi-Tier Network Discovery
The licensed Network Topology Mapper performs multi-tier discovery to create an integrated Layer 2 and Layer 3 OSI network map containing detailed device information.
Automatic detection of network topology changes
Network Topology Mapper automatically detects new devices and network topology changes with scheduled network scans.
Managing Network Inventory
Network Topology Mapper allows you to manage hardware inventory and generate reports automatically.
Generate Network and Inventory Reports
Network Topology Mapper’s robust reporting tools help you keep track of network and inventory information.
Easily Demonstrate Compliance with Custom Network Map Reports
NICs not only provide more visibility and better management of network inventory, they can also help you demonstrate compliance. The licensed Solarwinds NTM(SolarWinds NTM License) is designed to be FIPS 140-2 compliant, and the automatically generated network maps are designed to help you demonstrate PCI, HIPAA, SOX, and FIPS 140-2 compliance more easily. With this solution, you no longer have to struggle to account for your devices when it’s time for an audit and demonstrate compliance with an up-to-date NIC.
Get a complete view of your network inventory
In addition to creating a complete inventory of network devices, network inventory management with Network Topology Mapper gives you the benefit of a powerful mapping tool that uses
NTM to automatically create multiple maps from a single network scan multiple discovery methods including ICMP, SNMP, WMI, CDP, VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V and more to perform multi-layered network discovery. The discovery in NTM can create an integrated layer 2 and layer 3 OSI network map that contains detailed device information. These additional layers can help you dig deeper into your network, resulting in faster and more effective troubleshooting when problems arise.
Detecting changes in your network inventory
Compiling a network inventory is not a one-time challenge. Your inventory is only useful if it’s a trusted resource to turn to when you need to check an asset’s status. You need a network inventory management solution that can instantly detect changes to your inventory so your records are always up to date.
Network Topology Mapper periodically scans your network and automatically detects changes like added or removed assets. NTM can help detect changes you make to your network topology so you can be confident in the accuracy of your network inventory.
Automatically create a comprehensive network inventory
When it comes to effective IT network inventory management, it’s important to have an easily accessible and up-to-date list of network devices.While it used to be possible to create an inventory manually, modern networks are simply too large and constantly changing to make this possible.
SolarWinds Network Topology Mapper (NTM) makes it easier to create a network inventory of your devices, servers, virtualization hosts, and more. The tool includes a built-in auto-discovery feature to automatically locate your network resources and create an up-to-date record of your network with key details for each device.
Keep track of virtual machines with automatic network mapping
Virtual machines are useful for reducing physical hardware costs, saving energy, and simplifying network management, but they add complexity to an already diverse network. This helpful licensed software is designed to instantly detect VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V so they’re included on your NIC. NTM also helps you keep track of virtual machines by making it easier to manage network inventory.
Dive deeper into automated network mapping
NTM Visual Network Mapping Tool provides multi-device discovery. This automatic network map generator supports various detection methods including SNMP v1-v3, ICMP, WMI, CDP, VMware, Hyper-V and more. This allows you to create an integrated OSI Layer 2 and Layer 3 network map. These additional layers help you drill deeper into your network, achieve unmatched visibility, and troubleshoot more effectively.
Discover Your Entire Network with automated Network Mapping
NTM’s powerful auto-discovery capability penetrates deep into your network to discover devices on your network. If any of these devices change or new devices are added to your network, NTM can automatically discover them so you can keep an accurate record of your network. You can also customize network map icons to create the visual experience that helps you be more productive.
Simplify and Streamline Network Mapping
Dynamic network mapping is essential for keeping your environment organized, but manually mapping a network can be difficult and time-consuming. SolarWinds Network Topology Mapper (NTM) helps make the network diagram creation process easier and more intuitive with automatic network mapping. This IT network map tool allows you to automatically discover devices on your network and create detailed diagrams of devices and their connections. After the automatic network map is created, you can easily modify it to include more details. NTM maps can also support your other monitoring, planning, and troubleshooting efforts.
