“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” is a popular quote for a simple reason: Changes can lead to unexpected results. Many network engineers have learned this lesson the hard way. Stories of admins who update firmware or configurations only to have network problems begin are common. Even big names in networking have been hit by change-induced network failures.

However, they have also become a mainstay in various other fields, including healthcare, where their use has become prolific.

When the internet was first developed, the IP addressing scheme was IPv4. This addressing scheme worked really well for about 25 years. After all, it had about 4 billion host addresses. But as the internet grew, we started to see that this was just not going to be enough. Now we have an entire infrastructure that was built on IPv4. While IPv5 addresses have been exhausted, we’ve used band-aid solutions to keep the internet growing.

This article was born of necessity. Chatting with my editors at Auvik, I went looking to see what kinds of advice other sites had on SysAdmin tools you should have handy to do your job. Two things immediately struck me: Now don’t get me wrong, software is important to have. But what if you can’t access that device to use the software? What if there’s a (gasp!) physical issue that needs to be addressed, and you have to get some hands-on time with some racks?

As a network administrator, it’s vitally important to have a detailed understanding of your topology. Whether you’re troubleshooting, building out a network expansion, or showing management how your network design protects the business, an accurate and readable map is a must.

Auvik is cloud-based software that’s changing how networks are managed. Our software gives managed services providers (MSPs) instant visual insight into the infrastructure of their clients’ IT networks and automates complex and time-consuming network management tasks. Put simply, Auvik is changing the capabilities and upgrading the efficiency of network management.

Managing network infrastructure has traditionally been a very manual and time-consuming activity. Before Auvik, administrators were forced to log into network devices one by one using a command-line interface that most of us haven’t seen since DOS disappeared. They’d then type in arcane commands and try to make sense of the flood of data that came back.

Auvik dramatically simplifies the task of network management by making the software do the work. Our system automatically:

  • Discovers a network and displays it as a visual map.
  • Inventories and documents every device, service, and configuration on a network in real-time.
  • Parses, analyzes, and visually displays data to reduce network troubleshooting time.
  • Allows remote access to any device on a network from a single screen.

With Auvik, hundreds of normally complex and time-consuming tasks are reduced to simple, automated steps. And it’s all done through a beautiful and easy-to-use interface.
