Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM)

We are using IPAM as part of our SolarWinds Orion deployment. The main purpose of it is to eliminate the need for spreadsheets. We are able to scan subnets to see what IPs are being used and what aren't. We also added DHCP and DNS servers. When we first started using SolarWinds IP Address Manager we had real small subnets so monitoring DHCP allowed us to set up alerts when there were less than 5 IPs available.
  • See the devices on DHCP you didn't know about
  • Monitor your DHCP scopes, available IPs
  • Monitor your subnets and available IPs
  • Remove the need for spreadsheets
  • The layout of information, DHCP, DNS, and IP are all separated
  • Monitor IP usage of scopes before DHCP has no IPs to hand out
  • No more spreadsheets so time saved finding an IP
  • Searchable IP addresses
Besides Microsoft Excel spreadsheets I have only used IPAM.

If you are using spreadsheets to manage your subnets you need SolarWinds IP Address Manager. If you have small scopes for DHCP or any DHCP scopes, IPAM is a great way to manage and monitor those scopes. IPAM can be set up to scan subnets so being able to see and get alerted on new devices is also a great security feature.
