Nets is a full featured, extensible source code network inventory and management system. It provides features that allow the managers and administrators of computer networks to find and maintain information critical to the efficient and cost-effective administration of their network.
The Nets graphical user interface runs on any Unix or Microsoft Windows system, and works with almost any free or commercial SQL database as the back end. Supported databases include Oracle, Sybase, Informix, Microsoft SQL 6.5 and 7.0, MySQL, PostgreSQL and others.
Nets source code provides an open and extensible system for expanding and extending Nets to suit unique site-specific needs. A plugin API and execution hooks allow you to get control with your code during Nets operation. The full source database schema and user interface definitions allow easy addition of customer-specific information to the database.
Nets enables network administrators to build drawings and schematics of the network, and to drill down to discover important details about the network. Nets allows you to describe the Devices, Interfaces and Network links that comprise your network, and to visualise the complete set of IP addresses used in your network.
Nets brings benefits including portability - allows Nets to run in most organisations without the need for additional hardware, and runs with most existing or new SQL databases.
Flexible licensing and optional support contracts allows Nets purchasers to tailor costs to their needs. Supports small and large networks. Flexibility and extensibility allows organisations to meet their unique management needs.
