The Dude network monitor is a (not so) new application by MikroTik which can dramatically improve the way you manage your network environment. It will automatically scan all devices within specified subnets, draw and layout a map of your networks, monitor services of your devices and alert you in case some service has problems.
A great tool for automatic network discovery and mapping.
