Hi all,

 Need some recommendations for software that will produce a good network map.  I'd rather purchase a solution than try to get a piece of freeware to work.  Having decent support is also a plus.  I'm platform agnostic, even though the majority of machines are linux.  SolarWinds looks good so far.   Thanks in advance.

Bill

For automated AWS check out cloudcrafthttps://cloudcraft.co/
Lucidchart also has a smart AWS import and a pretty decent platform for all sorts of flowcharts and diagrams.

Visio and a junior assistant. ;)

The automatic solutions I've tried always seemed to need tweaking and futzing around before something semi useful came of them. and the results were usually not that great. Guess the answer really depends on how large the network is you wish to map... Is it 5 VLANS at the office or 140 networks between 8 locations and 3 partners with cloud presence?

If I were working at a large enterprise, ISP or government, I'd consider automated solutions but I think its safe to say for the majority of studios automation is just a time/money sink for the amount of times it'l be referenced/useful. but I could be wrong..

besides, Visio is fun to play with. ;)
