On March 5th of this year, Network Topology Mapper v1.0 was made available to the public.  Since then it has quickly become one of the more popular products that SolarWinds offers.  It’s a great tool for MSPs and IT Consultants that travel from one client location to the next because with only one license of NTM, an unlimited number of networks can be scanned and mapped.  It’s also a nice complement to SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM) because maps created in NTM can be exported to the Network Atlas format and then imported for use in NPM.
