Network tools are available to unit and neighborhood IT professionals to assist in monitoring and maintaining the in-building networks they help support. Access to these tools may require an on-campus or VPN connection. Tools include:
- Fluke & Tone Testing Tools
Many unit and neighborhood IT professionals have purchased a Network Fluke tool to locate a network switch, the port on a switch, and VLAN information.
Issue and manage IP addresses to device on the university campus networks.
- Device Configuration Tool (DCT)
Perform basic port maintenance tasks on network switches.
Locate devices on the network and where they are connected using MAC or IP address. Search by device vendor, switch, IP address, MAC address, or generate a report of used and unused IP addresses in a subnet.
- Network Information Database (NetInfo)
Review information on university networks, including: network name, IP subnet ranges, VLAN ID, physical location, description/purpose, and contact information for network hosts.
Check the status of most network devices on campus. Review network maps by building and a list of all current and recent outages.
- Network Reports
Additional network reports are available, including:
- Internet Traffic Report — provides data on how much traffic individual or groups of campus networks have exchanged with the Internet
- External Connection Capacity Graphs — provides a one week snapshot of the bandwidth utilization on our external connections to Merit, Internet2, Comcast, U-M Dearborn, and other Merit-connected U-M facilities.
