SNMP Sweep scans a range of IP addresses, shows which IP addresses are in use, and provides the following information:

  • DNS name
  • System Name
  • Location
  • Contact
  • Last Reboot
  • System Description
  • SNMP must be enabled on the device.
  • The deprecated version of SNMP exists in the Toolset Installation folder, the default location is \Program Files\SolarWinds\Toolset. The name has been changed to Deprecated_SNMPSweep.exe.

Sweep

  1. Enter the beginning and ending addresses of the IP address range you want to scan.
  2. Click Start SNMP Sweep.

If a computer is configured for IP forwarding, it is considered capable of routing. The computer may not actually be routing packets, but it can function as a router. This includes Windows-, Unix-, and Linux-based computers running IP forwarding services and daemons.

If you want information about addresses both in use and not in use, consider using Ping Sweep or IP address Management.
