SolarWinds Network Topology Mapper provides a Network Discovery Scan Wizard to specify the scope of a network you want to map. Discovery scans include SNMP, WMI, and VMware queries to interrogate devices for their node details and connectivity to other devices.

Each session of the Discovery Wizard creates a scan file. From a single scan file you can create multiple maps, all of which are saved as part of the specific scan file.

Perform a single scan of each set of subnets and IP ranges for which you intend to create maps visualizing the parts of the network. In some cases, depending on the size of your overall network, you may want to scan the entire network and then work with the results to define specific maps.

See the chapter on working with maps for details on using NTM features to create the views of your network that you want.
