Manage Subnets and IP Addresses page

The Manage Subnets & 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.
  • the right pane provides one of the following three views, depending on the type of network organization selected in the organization pane:
    • IP Address view
    • Network view
    • Chart view

See Manage subnets in IPAM for information about organizing your network with subnets.

See Manage supernets in IPAM for information about organizing your network with supernets.

See IPAM groups for information about organizing your network with groups.

The following sections describe the information is available on each Manage Subnets & IP Addresses view.

The columns in the IP Address View and Network views can be hidden or displayed by moving the cursor over any column heading, clicking on the down arrow that then appears, selecting Add/Remove Columns, and selecting or deselecting the appropriate item. You can also drag and drop the columns into the order required. These changes will be retained for your login.

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 & 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 menu.

See IPAM status icons for more information about IP address iconsIPAM status icons 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. See Add IP addresses to IPAM for more information about editing IP address properties.

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 & 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 and delete and import subnets by bulk.

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

See IPAM status icons for more information about network component icons.

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. See IPAM groups for more information about editing group properties.

See Edit subnets for more information about editing subnet properties.

See Edit supernets for more information about editing supernet properties.

By default, only the first 150 items are displayed in each tree branch on the Manage Subnets & IP Addresses page. To change this, go to System Settings and change the Tree max items value as appropriate.

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 & 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.
