  2. IPAM Explorer: Clicking on the "+" buttons will expand that directory, and clicking on a specific folder name will bring you into the view for that supernet/subnet/pool.
  3. Through the Simple and Advanced toggle here you can switch between simple or advanced filtering to narrow down the supernets being viewed.
    For more information on simple and advanced filtering, refer to our knowledge base article here.
  4. Export Results: Clicking this button will allow you to export the data contained within this table in a CSV or JSON format.
  5. Subnet: The general IP structure for your supernet.
  6. Name: The name of the supernet.
  7. Type: This displays whether the supernet is IPv4 or IPv6.
  8. Largest Free Block: The largest CDIR prefix of concurrent IP addresses.
  9. Utilization: The raw percentage of IP addresses already assigned to subnets.
  10. Edit Menu: Through this menu you can create, edit, or delete a supernet.
  11. Clicking the arrow will display the sidebar for that particular subnet, where you can view additional details and activity history.
  12. IP Lookup: Here you can search a specific IP address to bring up it's current and historical assignments.
  13. Create Supernet: If you want to create a supernet, you can do so by clicking here.

Supernet View

  1. Supernet: This is the current supernet you are viewing the details of.
  2. Current Usage: The percentage of your supernet that is presently has subnets assigned to it.
  3. Assigned Addresses: The number of IP addresses within the supernet that are currently assigned to accounts and network sites.
  4. Unassigned Addresses: The number of IP addresses within the supernet that are not currently assigned.
  5. Edit Menu: Clicking "Edit" will allow you to modify certain details of the supernet, while clicking the adjacent downward arrow will provide the options to delete the supernet or create a new subnet.
  6. Through the Simple and Advanced toggle here you can switch between simple or advanced filtering to narrow down the subnets being viewed.
    For more information on simple and advanced filtering, refer to our knowledge base article here.
  7. Subnets Table: This is a simplified subnet view showing all of the subnets within this supernet.

  9. IP Lookup: Here you can search a specific IP address to bring up it's current and historical assignments.
  10. Create Subnet: Through this button you can create a new subnet within this supernet.

Subnet View

  1. Subnet: This is the current subnet you are viewing the details of.
  2. Current Usage: The percentage of IP addresses within the subnet that are currently assigned to accounts and network sites.
  3. Assigned Addresses: The number of IP addresses within the subnet that are currently assigned to accounts and network sites.
  4. Unassigned Addresses: The number of IP addresses within the subnet that are not currently assigned.
  5. Edit Menu: Clicking "Edit" will allow you to modify certain details of the subnet, while clicking the adjacent downward arrow will provide a menu with additional options, such as deleting, splitting, or merging the subnet, and creating an IP pool.
  6. All IP Assignments Table: Here you can view the details of all IP assignments made from within this subnet.
  7. IP Pools Table: This is a simplified IP pool view showing all of the pools within this subnet.
  8. IP Lookup: Here you can search a specific IP address to bring up it's current and historical assignments.
  9. Create IP Pool: Clicking this button will open a new window where you can create an IP Pool from within this subnet.

Pool View

  1. IP Pool Details
    1. Name: The name of the IP Pool
    2. Subnet: The subnet that the pool belongs to
    3. IP Range: The range of available IPs within the pool
    4. IPs Available: The remaining IPs within a pool that are available to be assigned
  2. DHCP Servers Table: This table provides the details for the DHCP server that the pool is assigned to; through the "Edit DHCP Servers" button you can edit a DHCP server that the pool is currently assigned to, or assign an existing DHCP server.
Review the article here for more information on setting up a Sonar controlled DHCP server.
  1. LTE EPCs Table: This table provides the details for the LTE EPCs that the pool is assigned to; through the "Edit LTE EPCs" button you can edit an LTE EPC that the pool is currently assigned to, or assign an existing LTE EPC.
  2. IP Assignments Table: This table will display any IP assignments that have been made within this pool.
  3. IP Lookup: Here you can search a specific IP address to bring up it's current and historical assignments.

IP Lookup View

Using the IP lookup will present you with a view that shows you where an IP address is assigned as well as all historical assignments that have ever existed for this IP address. A common use case for this tool would be to lookup the assignment history in order to properly link a time and IP address presented in a DMCA offence notice to the proper offending account.

  1. IP Lookup: Entering in the IP address here that you wish to lookup will bring you to this IP Lookup View page.
  2. IP Assignment:
    1. Subnet: The individual IP you are looking up
    2. Subnet: The subnet this individual IP is a member of
    3. Entity: This displays the type of entity that the IP is assigned to
    4. Soft: If this IP address was soft assigned, it will display "Yes"
    5. IP Pool: The name of the IP pool that the assignment is a member of
    6. Entity: This displays the type of
    7. Entity ID: The specific ID that the IP assignment is made to, for example: an inventory model field ID or RADIUS user ID
  3. Current Assignment: This area will display the details for the entity that the IP is assigned to, such as
    1. The Inventory Model Field
    2. The Inventory Item (Model and ID)
    3. The Inventory Model Field Value
    4. The Assignee information, which you can click on to receive information on the account or Network Site in question
  4. IP Assignment History Table: If the IP assignment has ever existed on another account or network site, record of that history will be shown here.
