NeDi – Network Discovery

I came across this software yesterday and must admit I was quite impressed at this open source network discovery software. The basic idea is to use existing network discovery protocols such as CDP, FDP, LLDP as well as SNMP to “crawl” a network and record the various network relationships encountered. It also appears to have a very clean and user friendly interface which is something many network management tools seem to lack.

NeDi is web based and runs on a standard LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) infrastructure.
