Introduction

A static document cannot incorporate references to the latest tools

nor recent revisions to the older catalog entries. To provide a more

timely and responsive information source, the NOCtools catalog is

available on-line via the Internet and Usenet.

Because of publication delays and other factors, some of the entries

in this catalog may be out of date. The reader is urged to consult

the on-line service to obtain the most up-to-date information.

The index provided in this document reflects the current contents of

the on-line documentation.

The NOCtools2 Working Group of the Internet Engineering Task Force

(IETF) has compiled this revised catalog. Future revisions will be

incorporated into the on-line NOCtools catalog. The reader is

encouraged to submit new or revised entries for (near-immediate)

electronic publication.

The tools described in this catalog are in no way endorsed by the

IETF. For the most part, we have neither evaluated the tools in this

catalog, nor validated their descriptions. Most of the descriptions

of commercial tools have been provided by vendors. Caveat Emptor.

Current Postings
