The following options are available for adding IP addresses to IPAM:


  • A range of IP addresses can be added to any defined subnet. This is usually done when you want to monitor specific addresses within a large subnet. For smaller subnets containing 4096 or fewer IP addresses (/21 or and higher mask), Orion IPAM automatically monitors all included IP addresses. For more information see Adding IP Address Ranges.
  • IP addresses may be added for monitoring by adding a parent subnet into any existing group, supernet, or subnet that Orion IPAM is already monitoring. Adding such a subnet is a straightforward process. For more information about adding subnets, see Creating Subnets.
  • The Subnet Allocation Wizard allows you to directly define subnets and allocate included IP addresses.
  • IPAM provides the ability to add IPv6 Sites and Addresses for planning purposes. For more information see IPv6 Addresses.
