The Manage Subnets and IP Addresses page is the primary management interface for IPAM. The page is divided into two panes.The left pane provides a network tree representing the organization of your network into supernets, subnets, and groups. Depending on the type of network organization currently selected in the organization pane, the right pane provides one of the following three views:

  • IP Address
  • Network
  • Chart

For more information about organizing your network with subnets, see Managing Subnets in IPAM.

For more information about organizing your network with supernets, see Managing Supernets in IPAM.

For more information about organizing your network with groups, see Managing Groups in IPAM.

The following sections describe the information that is available on each these Manage Subnets and IP Addresses views.

IP Address View

The IP Address View displays whenever a subnet is selected, either in the Network View on the right or in the network organization pane on the left of the Manage Subnets and IP Addresses page. This view provides a list of all IP addresses that are within the selected subnet. This view can be filtered by selecting the DHCP Managed dropdown menu.

Each IP address is listed with a selection of IP address properties. With the exception of Last Update, which is reported by IPAM as the result of a network scan, values for displayed IP address properties are set using the Edit IP Address window. For more information about editing IP address properties, see Adding IP Addresses.

Network View

The Network View displays whenever a group or supernet is selected in the network organization pane on the left of the Manage Subnets and IP Addresses page. If a group is selected, the view provides a list of all other groups, supernets, and subnets that are defined within the selected group. If a supernet is selected, the view provides a list of all subnets that are defined within the selected supernet. The Network Tab also provides the ability to edit a single IP Address, delete and import subnets by bulk.

The status of displayed network components is designated using colored icons.

For more information about network component icons, see IPAM Status Icons Each network component (group, subnet, and supernet) is listed with a selection of component properties. With the exception of Last Discovery, which is reported by IPAM as the result of a network scan, values for displayed network component properties are set using the appropriate Edit Network Component Properties window. For more information about editing group properties, see Editing Groups.

For more information about editing subnet properties, see Editing Subnets.

For more information about editing supernet properties, see Editing Supernets.

Chart View

The Chart View provides a concise, visual report of your IP address allocation for any network component selected in the network organization pane. It is on the right pane of the Manage Subnets and IP Addresses page. A pie chart displays the designated status of your monitored IP addresses. An availability report displays both the percentage of all possible IP addresses in the selected group, subnet, or supernet that are present for monitoring and the percentage of present IP addresses that are available for assignment. 

For more information about IP address states in IPAM, see IPAM Status Icons.
