Import from a Network Sonar database

If you have discovered your network using Network Sonar, you can import the discovery results directly into Network Monitor. See Network Sonar

Import from a comma delimited file

When you create a comma delimited file, also referred to as a CSV or comma separated value file, each field is separated by a comma. For Network Monitor, ensure the first field is the IP address and the second field is the node name. The following example was created with Ping Sweep, leaving response time out of the report.

Import from a Microsoft Access database

This import method reads directly from a Microsoft Access database. You must select the table within the Access database that contains the nodes to import.

Network Monitor attempts to determine which field contains the IP addresses. If it cannot determine which field contains the IP addresses, and then you must select the field. You must also select the field that contains the name of each node.
