Summary: Web Based tool for tracking circuits

  • From: Marius Strom
  • Date: Mon Mar 08 13:02:16 2004

Sorry about the self-reply, but I figured I'd keep the Followup threads
going on this one.

Out of almost a dozen responses received, it seems that everyone is
currently looking for such a solution. Everyone currently seems to be
using their own Excel spreadsheet (which, obviously, isn't that ideal in
a shared environment).

One person is using IRM[1], slightly modified to track circuits and IP
allocations instead of just tracking computers.

Another person (Curtis Maurand <curtis@maurand.com>) sent mail to NANOG
indicating at one point he was working on such a beast. Curtis, I'm
gonna pass the buck to you -- it looks like it's time to dust off your
project cause nothing else exists. If you're wanting to do so, contact
me off-list and I'll see what help I can lend (though IANA web
developer).
