Device Discovery Tool with SNMP Network Discovery

Device42 enables SNMP discovery for network devices and more. SNMP discovery provides comprehensive capabilities to identify and track physical and logical components, their relationships, and their inter-dependencies.

  • Switch/router/firewall inventory
  • IP to MAC address relationships
  • MAC address to switch port relationships
  • VLANs/subnets
  • SNMP v1/v2c/v3 supported
  • Discover CDP/LLDP neighbors
  • Custom discovery scheduling

Load Balancer Discovery

Combining SNMP with native APIs, Device42 connects to your load balancer and does the following:

  • Discovers basic inventory info such as hardware model, serial number, hostname, OS details, and more!
  • Discovers virtual servers, pools and member nodes.
  • Maps the discovered member nodes with auto-discovered devices using other auto-discovery methods.
  • Automatically creates detailed dependency maps for virtual servers.

Hypervisors and Virtual Machines Discovery

Device42 connects to your hypervisors and automatically gathers host and VM details. Scheduled discoveries ensure your VM documentation stays up-to-date as VMs migrate between hosts. Supported platforms include:

  • VMware vCenter and/or ESXi
  • Citrix Xen
  • oVirt/Redhat
  • KVM/Xen/libvirt
  • OpenVZ
  • LXC
  • Docker
  • CloudStack
  • OpenStack

Cisco UCS Manager Auto-discovery

Device42 connects natively with Cisco UCS Manager to automatically populate chassis, blades, and service profile information. This enables powerful search within Device42 and automatic service profile to blade device correlations.

Agentless Auto-Discovery


    No need to install agents on your Windows machines to keep your inventory information up-to-date!


    Similar to Windows auto-discovery, you can also discover Unix and Linux platforms including Solaris, AIX, Redhat/CentOS, Ubuntu, SUSE Linux, BSD, and more!

    Data collected includes:

    • Basic info– Basic inventory information (hostname, serial number, hardware model, CPU/memory/hard disk details)
    • OS– Operating system with version number and build information
    • Address details– IP and MAC addresses and their relationships (automatically maps corresponding switch ports)
    • Software– Installed software (including version number and installation date)
    • Services– System services (running or stopped)
    • Connections– Listening ports for all the services and remote connections
    • Dependencies– Service-to-service IP, port maps, and application dependency maps

    DNS Sync and Ping Sweep

    Connect to any DNS servers with zone transfers and correlate IPs with your DNS records automatically. Also, you can use ping sweep to augment your network discovery to get IPs, MACs, reverse-DNS, and more.

    SNMP and IPMI Auto-Discovery

      The standard for network equipment, SNMP discovery also extends to blade systems like those from IBM, HP, Dell, Fujitsu, and Sun to provide chassis and blade level details. Features also include SAN storage inventory and data collection, plus support for console switches and other SNMP-based devices.

      External Integrations and REST APIs

          Take advantage of out-of-the-box integrations with Jira, ServiceNow, Puppet, Chef, Infoblox, Splunk, and more. Easily export your data anytime, or import from almost anywhere. RESTful APIs make custom integrations easy, too!
