Re: IP Address Management IPAM software for small ISP

We're running postgres on the backend due to a limitation we ran into when implementing v6 support in mysql. So standard postgres backup practices would apply.

We also run a 24x7 NOC though only 4 support people. It's light on database access so I can't imagine you would have a problem with robustness (it's just PHP/Postgres). We have 8 /19's, a /32 v6 block and a smattering of other blocks that are managed using it.

Thanks Jeremy - looks pretty good, and specific, and I like the DNS
integration.  I haven't downloaded or installed it yet.

Do you think it's robust enough for a 24x7 Network Operations Center
that has 8 or so users?

Is the database a flat file that is easily backed up and restored?   or
are you using MySQL?
Much appreciated, Eric

A colleague and myself wrote one in PHP that supports v4 and v6.  It's
available on sourceforge:
