    We have added this option in v13.1.1 for SNMP jobs.

    Being able to ping and telnet from the CLI would be very beneficial too.

    ping / telnet from the CLI is a very good idea.
    Having the ability to add other type of access would be nice (http(s), ssh, mstsc, ...).

    No need to implement all these process inside Device42, but simply calling an external software like putty for example for telnet / ssh, or IE/Chrome/Firefox/... for http(s)

    With passwords centralized in Device42, no more need of other password manager

    When is this planned?  

     

    My SNMP scans are unbearably slow that would be fixed by a quick telnet or ping.I also noticed SNMP version 1 is used even when you select version 2.  I noticed this in the log, it may be a scan that can be eliminated.

    I'd also like to mention that possibly allowing users to shrink/edit timeouts for scans could also help this issue as well.

    Jose mentioned in November that this is set for a near future release.  How far away is this?  In Device42, my scans just take way too long(/23 networks take 2-3 hours).  In the Windows autodiscovery tool, I experience memory leaks because of the inefficient scanning.

    Hi Ryan,

    Jose mentioned the ping/telnet from the CLI - which we have added in the appliance manager.

    Regarding ping before SNMP - it is on the list and hasn't been addressed yet.

    Regarding windows tool - we are almost done with a complete re-write of that tool, which will offer better memory management along with other enhancements.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Raj

    Is the Windows rewrite apart of the latest version 9.6.0 that you have on your website currently?
