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 ?
