Device Management









Device Management

These PERL scripts help us manage our flock of gear, mostly Cisco switches & routers and APC UPSes. Over the years, I've run into gear from Ascend, Allied Telesyn, and HP, and as a result, a few of the scripts support these manufacturers as well.

The APC scripts manage American Power Conversion AP96xx cards, typically installed in APC SmartUPS, Matrix, Symmetra, or Silcon UPSes.

The Cisco scripts manage our flock of IOS devices.

The Generic scripts have been generalized to work on gear from multiple manufacturers.

The Hosts scripts tackle issues specific to end-stations.

The IP Space scripts manage our IP space.

The Misc scripts consist of a collection of xxx-alarm scripts aimed at various hardware manufacturers.

The Soma project gathers data about end-stations using anonymous and semi-anonymous methods (dumping CAM and ARP tables from switches and routers, DNS look-ups, NetBIOS name queries, SNMP queries, NMAP and Nessus scans), stores the results in a database, and presents a reporting front-end.

The Windows scripts work on WinNT 4.x/5.x.
