    ICMP or SNMP for IPAM network scan ?!

    sathvikrachha

      Hi All,

       

      I have recently started using IP Address Management (IPAM).

       

      I  believe IPAM uses two protocols for scanning the network 1) ICMP and 2) SNMP.

      ICMP being the default scan, it is Solarwinds recommendation. But the ICMP pings produces a lot of traffic in the network deep down. When coming to SNMP, this is used by NPM monitors the network health which I believe is also ideal for IPAM as well.

       

      Can you please give me your opinions on which is the ideal protocol for Scanning the network IP addresses in IPAM ?

       

      Thank you,
