In a large environment like mine, we add subnets, or break up subnets on a daily basis. I would like to see IPAM read the route table from a list of routers and pull the smallest subnets and auto populate them into IPAM. Due to summarization, it will need to pull from a list of routers, maybe every night, and populate the DB with the highest bits (24bit, etc.)
This is the number one complaint I hear from my design team. They have to manually type all this in.
Another way to do this may be pulling the interface IP's or subnets. Then you can also pull the description off the vlan/interface. That would be real nice...
