Managing network configurations is a key capability of Hybrid Cloud Observability Advanced and is also available in a standalone module, Network Configuration Manager (NCM). Hybrid Cloud Observability Advanced and NCM are built on the self-hosted SolarWinds Platform.

Uses of NCM inventory reports

Use NCM inventory reports to access up-to-date device information and to manage the inventory of your network infrastructure. NCM automatically updates your device information when you import a device. Select and run an inventory report to collect specific information for devices. For example, you can run an inventory scan of all IP addresses inventoried on each device. A searchable list of IP addresses is valuable when trying to locate an address in a large network. You can also set regular inventory scans to gather device information.

Examples of device information collected by network inventory reports include:

  • Serial numbers
  • Port details
  • IP addresses
  • Vendors
  • End-of-life dates
  • End-of-support dates
  • Maintenance providers

You can choose from several unique inventory reports, or create your own.

Popular out-of-the-box inventory reports include:

  • Cisco 3750 Stack - Physical Entity: displays information about Physical Entities within each device.
  • Cisco Chassis IDs: displays the Chassis IDs (and serial number if available) for Cisco devices.
  • Cisco IOS Image Details: shows details about the running IOS in each Cisco device.
  • Cisco VLANs: displays which VLAN IDs belong to which devices.
