DISCOVERY & MAPPING
Know exactly what’s on the network and how it’s all connected in real-time
Auvik pulls data from sources like CDP, LLDP, and forwarding tables to meticulously model the Layer 1 network diagram. Layers 2 and 3 are built from ARP tables, IP assignments, and VLAN associations to show you exactly what’s on the network, where it is, and how it’s connected.
INVENTORY & DOCUMENTATION
Get full details for every device on the network
Auvik’s automated inventory uses network protocols to detect and capture full details for every device on the network including make and model, serial number, IP address, and the physical switchport the device is connected to. If you know which device you’re looking for but don’t know where it’s located, you can easily find the device and every other device it’s connected to using our intelligent search.
HARDWARE LIFECYCLE DATA
Easily identify devices that need to be upgraded or replaced
Auvik pulls lifecycle data from supported devices to show you whether they’re on current or expired support contracts, whether there are more up-to-date software versions available, if devices are eligible to receive critical security updates, and if devices are still available for purchase.
“Auvik definitely helps keep device inventories up to date. I’m able to tell how long ago the device was offline. Being an MSP, we don’t always know everything that happens at a customer’s company. Now, we have more information and it gives us much better insights into the customer and network.”
“It’s incredibly important, given our work as a managed service provider, to have a single pane of glass environment. That is very crucial to being able to identify and diagnose issues with a network and fix them promptly. We don’t have to log in to 15 different devices to track down how things are connected.”
[With Auvik] “we don’t have to have someone dedicated to monitoring the network or documenting networks. We actually have him doing work that we need done, like helping our customers, instead of just documenting.”
