Im curious how many of you have used Netdisco for finding devices on your network quickly. Armed with just a MAC address I can quickly find out which port on which switch a device is connected to. It has tons of great features aside from a Fluke Linksprinter I can search and locate with ease. Have you used this? I’m curious who else uses it.

Netdisco is a web-based network management tool designed for network administrators. Data is collected into a PostgreSQL database using SNMP.
Some of the things you can do with Netdisco:
Locate a machine on the network by MAC or IP and show the switch port it lives at
Turn off a switch port, or change the VLAN or PoE status of a port
Inventory your network hardware by model, vendor, software and operating system
Pretty pictures of your network
