Total Network Inventory is a complete solution for managing network resources, including hardware and software installed on remote machines. It provides extensive inventory management features, reporting and PC auditing making it a perfect solution for today’s demanding corporate networks. Total Network Inventory provides a complete solution for network scanning without needing to have client-side software installed. Computers running Windows, Linux or Mac OS X operating systems can easily be scanned without the necessity for any software having to be preinstalled on the remote computer. The only thing you’ll need to be able to access the remote computer is the administrator password. This software allows you to scan individual nodes, the Active Directory structure or network address ranges.
Total Network Inventory provides a wide selection of advanced inventory management features. You can group assets, provide comments or attach additional information to your network information as it is reported. The report features offered by this software are equally impressive. Flexible and extensive reporting is provided in a range of different categories. You can build table reports and then copy, export or print them. A full-featured search function allows you to see the results before you have even finished entering information. Software accounting is also provided by Total Network Inventory. Once the network scan has been carried out, you will be provided with a list of all the software found in your network. A few clicks away are detailed reports which will provide you with information such as the number of copies of a program you have installed on your network as well as which computers they are installed on.
Total Network Inventory allows you to scan pretty much everything on your network including Linux- and Apple-based computers. Other devices connected to the network will also be scanned, provided that they support the SNMP protocol. The scanning feature is particularly clever and it’s also quick and easy to use. All you need to do is tell the software what to scan and then it will discover your entire network and its assets. It is also possible to scan nodes in a specific IP address range. You’ll see a list of workgroup computers and the domain structure will be extracted, showing you exactly what is connected to your network. You can then select discovered nodes, specify login names and passwords for them and much more. Scanning typically takes a few minutes and the data which is gathered is placed into the Total Network Inventory storage.
Using network inventory software is the ultimate way to keep track of large corporate networks. It assists with keeping software updated, maintenance of the network and much more. The only other alternative is to do everything manually, literally walking around the office writing everything down yourself. In today’s ever-growing business networks, this quickly becomes impractical and even impossible. Instead, you can try using Total Network Inventory which will allow you to audit all of the hardware and software on your network from the comfort of your desk.
