NetState is a distributed network monitoring system. It uses passive sensors to develop status information on a target network.
Multiple NetState sniffers can be deployed, one at each entry point of the target network. The sniffers monitor network traffic, then send the information to the NetState server. The information is stored in a centralized database which can then be accessed via standard SQL database queries or a web-based GUI, for further analysis and display.
Here are some key features of "NetState":
· Version tracking maintains information about software and operating systems versions.
· Port tracking identifies information about active TCP and UDP ports.
