Documentation forIP Address Manager
Managing IP addresses is a key capability of Hybrid Cloud Observability and is also available in a standalone module, IP Address Manager (IPAM). Hybrid Cloud Observability and IPAM are built on the self-hosted SolarWinds Platform.

IP Address Details

The IPAM IP Address Details page provides all details associated with an IP address, including Mac or host name assignment history, and DNS records. If SolarWinds Platform UDT is also installed, IP Addresses that are being tracked will also display the related UDT widgets on a second IP Address Details page.

To access the IP Address Details page:

  1. Go to My Dashboards > Manage Subnets and IP Addresses.
  2. Drill down to the required range of IP Addresses.
  3. Select a single IP address, and click View Details.

    The IPAM IP Address Details page for the selected IP address is displayed.

    If UDT is installed, and the selected IP address is being tracked, the icon in the right column is displayed. Click to display UDT-related information for this IP address.

Historical tracking

Use the historical tracking feature for IP addresses, MAC assignments, and Host name assignments to view how properties have changed over time.

Click the arrow after the current time period to set the time period to view.

For example, you can track MAC addresses and host names previously assigned to an IP Address.

For IP addresses that have been deleted and added with a different node ID, IPAM history displays historical information from the date of the most recent node ID. Any information prior to the recent addition is deleted from IPAM history. IPAM does not retain historical information for deleted IP addresses.

By default, the IP Address Details page contains the following widgets:

If the selected IP Address is being tracked by UDT, the following widgets are displayed on the User & Devices page.
