The Network Tracking Database (NetDB for short) tracks all changes to the MAC address tables on your switches and the ARP tables on your routers over time stored in MySQL. It supports extensive switch, VLAN and vendor code reports from a CLI or Web App. NetDB can generate CSV reports, track the usage of static IP addresses, record neighbor discovery data and much more.

There is now a VM "appliance" with easier upgrades available in the Files section.

See the for more details.

  • huawei switch S1720-28GWR -4P not support Network Tracking Database (NetDB) open source. Currently Cisco and HP support this software. contact by 9566026027

  • Great! Thank you for this

  • Excellent, does what it says it does, and does it well.

  • Just simple and powerful

  • I am only 3 days in and already I have tons (TONS) of useful information at my fingertips. Our environment has NXOS, IOS and IBM N/OS switches and ASA firewalls ... the various high priced apps we already have all have problems trying to map IP address to hostname to switchport - a problem that Network Tracking Database does not have. Even Cisco's own Ciscoworks has problems pulling the information I want from their own Nexus devices (via SNMP). Network Tracking Database using SSH - NO PROBLEM.
