IP Address Tracker is a new free tool from SolarWinds that provides simple IP address management. It scans your networks and lists all used and unused IP addresses with their DNS names and their response times. SNMP-enabled devices also display the machine type, system name, and location.

IP addresses can be marked as available, unused or reserved and comments added to each host. Each IP subnet has its own tab, which makes it convenient to keep track of all of your networks. The tool's filters are also useful features. You can restrict its output to available addresses (by default IPs of hosts that didn't respond), used addresses (IPs of machines that have responded), and reserved addresses (IPs that you mark as reserved).
It is possible to move the database to a shared location, so that all admins can access it. IP Address Tracker can export the database to a CSV file, which allows you to import your IP database in Excel or any other spreadsheet program. This can be useful if you want to perform a statistical analysis when the computers in your network are usually online.
As with all free SolarWinds tools, a commercial version is also available. It is called IPAM (IP Address Management) and belongs to the Orion network management family. Its main additional feature is that scans can be scheduled. That way your IP address database will always be up-to-date.
