ManageEngine OpUtils is a powerful and reliable IPAM solution and switch port monitoring software. Its ready-to-use real-time monitoring tools help engineers efficiently monitor, diagnose, and troubleshoot IT resources. As a web-based, cross-platform tool, ManageEngine OpUtils runs on Windows and Linux.

ManageEngine OpUtils Features

ManageEngine OpUtils has many valuable key features. Some of the most useful ones include:

  • IP address manager: The solution’s IP address manager helps effectively manage all IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. It provides flexible discovery options, such as subnet discovery and bulk import. In addition, it allows you to scan, monitor, and define a hierarchy of multiple subnets based on their usage and location.
  • Switch port mapper: The switch port mapper feature helps discover the devices plugged into each port of a specified switch. This is useful for system and network engineers to gain visibility into the connected IPs, MAC addresses, stacked ports, and speed of each port across their network, all from a centralized console.
  • DHCP server monitoring: ManageEngine OpUtils’ DHCP server monitoring feature offers detailed insights into the DHCP server. It also aids in subnet discovery and enables you to receive a clear overview of your IP address utilization including insights into DHCP-specific metrics.
  • Rogue detection: The solution’s rogue detection periodically scans routers and subnets to identify and list any new systems and devices connecting to your network. Network admins can verify and mark these devices as ‘trusted’, ‘guest’, or ‘rogue’. Devices marked as ‘rogue’ are blocked from accessing the network, which helps to prevent unauthorized network access.
  • CISCO Config file management: This feature enables you to take a scheduled backup of the startup and running configuration files of CISCO routers and switches at regular intervals. It retrieves the CISCO configuration files at defined intervals and stores them in the file system. The CISCO tools enable the backup, retrieval, comparison, and upload of CISCO configuration files.

ManageEngine OpUtils Benefits

There are many benefits to implementing ManageEngine OpUtils. Some of the biggest advantages the solution offers include:

  • Multiple diagnostic tools: The solution has a collection of diagnostic tools consisting of generic utilities, for day to day management of the system and network. The tools can be used to troubleshoot and to debug connectivity issues, packet loss, and latency issues in a LAN environment.
  • SNMP tools: With the solution’s SNMP tools, you can perform basic SNMP operations, such as viewing the details of a MIB node, and periodically querying the given SNMP device for the specified OID value to plot results in a graph and receive SNMP traps.
  • Mobile app: ManageEngine OpUtils comes with an iOS and Android mobile app that seamlessly integrates with your on-premises deployment, enabling network monitoring on the go. With the solution’s mobile application, you can efficiently troubleshoot network issues directly from a smartphone or tablet, and gain comprehensive insights into network endpoints and address space, regardless of where you are.
