Hi everyone! Would you like to recommend some free tools you are using to manage or monitor the network?

RE: Free softwares to manage or monitor the network

What do you mean by "manage or monitor the network"?
What exactly do you need?
SNMP?/Traffic?

You can monitor the ports and you sniff the traffic.
I'm using ntop (http://www.ntop.org/) for traffic analysis.

I've found IP Host Monitor very useful! You can monitor up to 15 devices on their free edition.

If you can add more, it could be very helpful to others. I'm also looking for a FREE tool that is capable to map switch ports (port #, mac address & IP).

I'm also looking for a FREE tool that is capable to identify who is using most of our Internet bandwidth in realtime.
