NetConnect is a command line tool for automating the login process to routers, switches, or UNIX hosts and any intermediate devices or proxies in the path. It does this by using credentials supplied within a configuration file. It also allows users to run Perl based scripts on a single device or devices in parallel to automate tasks. Although it was originally designed around Cisco routers and switches, it can be extended to work with any CLI based device by specifying custom prompts that different devices use. It works well with Cisco routers and switches as the concepts around "enable" mode and the corresponding syntax of the prompt are contained within the source. Devices can be stored within your configuration file, so you are able to connect to devices using a portion of their name (using regular expressions) as opposed to having to remember IP addresses or full DNS names.
Counters.pl collects the CLI counters from network devices and produces custom reports. These counters can be reset independently of the SNMP counters, and when collected weekly, can highlight issues such as connection errors that you will not see looking at graphs produced from SNMP counters. They also contain information that is not available via SNMP. The reports can be viewed on a Web site and/or sent via email. There is a flexible configuration language in which reports can be specified. The format and style of the HTML reports are controlled by Template Toolkit templates and CSS. Currently only Cisco network equipment is supported.
glNetViz is a tool for visualizing computer network topologies with WebGL. With the abilities of real time visualizing network traffics flowing around the local network and to/from the Internet, you can manage the various network more easily and efficiently. glNetViz is intended to be a convenient tool that can easily visualize the network topology from the serialized data in YAML or JSON.
