  1. Are you aware of the open source tool Netdisco? Here is their quick summary. Netdisco is a web-based network management tool suitable for small to very large networks. IP and MAC address data is collected into a PostgreSQL database using SNMP, CLI, or device APIs.

    I’ve been listening to the podcast a couple of months, and though this comment is several weeks late, I wanted to share this excellent tool that we have used for a few years. Does a great job with scanning switches and keeping up with where endpoints and devices are connected. Check it out. Just needs a linux host, or I think there is a docker container version.
