NeDi uses SNMP and information container in device CDP, CAM and ARP tables to step from device to device. Along the way it identifies any nodes attached to those devices. Device configurations can also be pulled and stored for comparison between executions of NeDi. Changes can be communicated to network administrators.
GroundWork Monitor uses data from NeDi to populate the Configuration tool (Monarch) for monitoring using Nagios. Additionally, GroundWork Monitor NMS uses NeDi to support efficient discovery of network devices and nodes.
