Explore your local network's topology, document LAN layout, and create diagrams easily with our network diagrammer program.
10-Strike Network Diagram
is a powerful network topology discovery software for Windows for the quick graphic vector diagram creation and exporting it to Microsoft Visio,
vector or raster images. The program scans hosts and addresses on your local area network, discovers the network topology, automatically builds a graphical network diagram (map),
displays computers and devices of different types as special icons, and draws links between the devices
(if your switches support the SNMP protocol).
Create and save network diagrams in popular graphical formats, copy and paste diagrams to documents as graphic images, print them, or export to Microsoft Visio for further processing.
How the Network Diagramer Program Works
10-Strike Network Diagram offers two ways to creating a network topology map.
The first one is automatic diagram creation. According to user-defined IP ranges and scanning methods, the application attempts to locate devices within the network. Available search methods include pinging over ICMP, scanning specified TCP ports, and attempting to convert IP address to MAC (ARP). The application runs several parallel threads for searching for devices within a specified range. Scanning a range of 1500 IP addresses takes no more than 3-4 minutes. The application can also locate devices with active SNMP agents: switches, network printers, routers, etc. Using the data obtained from the switches over SNMP, the application draws graphic connections between the network devices it has found. While doing that, the program will make up a pretty picture of icons and connection lines on the map in the form of graphs. Connections to a switch are labeled with port names of that switch. 10-Strike Network Diagram employs an original sophisticated algorithm for recognizing types of the devices. Thus, the application can recognize networked and local printers, servers, database servers, routers, switches, and hubs.
The second way is manual editing. The software includes a library of objects, graphic primitives, and lines. With simple manipulations, required icons can be placed on a diagram, linked with connection lines, and marked with areas. All the operations are intuitive and do not take much time to complete.
A ready network diagram can be saved as a vector (Windows Metafile) or raster (JPEG, PNG, BMP) image, or exported to a Microsoft Visio document. The program can print the diagram on paper with options for setting the printing quality, position on page, and page orientation.

Starting from the version 2.2, the program can create global networks diagrams using route tracing. The program allows you to use Google Maps as background images:
What else? If you want to monitor hosts placed on your network diagrams, try our network mapping and monitoring program LANState Pro
LANState is a network mapping, monitoring, and management software for Windows networks. In addition to almost the same network diagrammer features as 10-Strike Network Diagram has, LANState Pro supports the network device monitoring function that allows you to see the state of network devices on a graphic diagram in the real time, and to receive notifications when your network devices go down or recover. Respond to failures promptly and minimize expenses!
Please check the comparison table below for selecting a proper program that suits your needs better. 30-day trial versions are available for downloading for both applications.
10-Strike Network Diagram vs LANState Pro
This table below shows the program comparison. LANState Pro has got the same LAN topology discovery engine (as ND has) and almost the same diagramming functions. But it can monitor hosts, generate alerts, and manage your devices using the graphic map in addition.
We hope this table will help you to understand what product suits your needs better. If you are still having questions, please contact us and ask.
