Abstract

The goal of this FYI memo is to provide an update to FYI 2, RFC 1147 [1], which provided practical information to site administrators and network managers. New and/or updated tools are listed in this RFC. Additonal descriptions are welcome, and should be sent to: noctools- entries@merit.edu.

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Because of publication delays and other factors, some of the entries in this catalog may be out of date.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.

RFC 1470 FYI: Network Management Tool Catalog June 1993

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.

Acknowledgements

This catalog is the result of work on the part of the NOCTools2 Working Group of the User Services Area of the IETF. The following individuals made especially notable contributions: Chris Myers, Darren Kinley, Gary Malkin, Mohamed Ellozy, and Mike Patton.

Current Postings

The current contents of the NOCtools catalog may be retrieved via anonymous FTP from wuarchive.wustl.edu. The entries are stored as individual files in the directory /doc/noctools.

"No-Writeups" Appendix

This section contains references to tools which are known to exist, but which have not been fully cataloged. If anyone wishes to author an entry for one of these tools please contact us at:

noctools-request@merit.edu

Keep in mind that if these or other tools are included in the future, they will be available in the on-line version of the catalog.

Each mention is separated by a <form-feed> for improved readability. If you intend to actually print-out this section of the catalog, then you should probably strip-out the <ff>.
