Software for Managing Network Inventory

Introducing the latest version of Total Network Inventory 6, a PC inventory system for audits and inventory management. For those looking for a dedicated solution to keep track of network devices, our scan inventory software offers an efficient and systematic approach.

Network scanning

Effortlessly scan computers and servers across Windows, macOS, Linux, FreeBSD, and ESX/ESXi-based systems without preinstalled agents. All that is required is the administrator's password. You can target individual nodes, specific network ranges, or the entire Active Directory structure.

Inventory management

In the centralized TNI database, each computer occupies just a few dozen kilobytes. Organize assets into groups, annotate them, and append detailed information. With Total Network Inventory, your network is displayed in full detail, thanks to its robust hardware inventory program.


Generate versatile reports across various data types with this inventory software. Utilize the tool to create detailed table reports with numerous data fields. These reports can be duplicated, exported, or printed, and the instant search function provides results as you type.

Change log

Monitor and track all changes in hardware and software. Be alerted when software is installed, updated, or removed, or when hardware is connected or removed. Observe trends in disk space and other significant metrics.

Task scheduler

Set up automatic tasks for data gathering and exporting. Schedule single or recurring tasks for scanning, reporting, and data input/output. Whether it's daily, every Friday, or the first Monday of each month, you can tailor the schedule to fit your needs and keep your inventory up-to-date.

Additional features

Create a detailed network map, compile a database of network users, and maintain various passwords for different assets and protocols. These features, along with many others from our inventory application, will significantly streamline your network auditing process.

Any network devices that support the SNMP protocol.

What's required?

Only the administrator's password is needed. There is no need to install agents on remote computers or perform any other preliminary actions for a network scan. Simply install Total Network Inventory 6 on one computer, and swiftly gather data from your entire network.

Intelligent scanning

Define your scan requirements and let the program uncover your network. It identifies all nodes within an IP range, detects workgroup computers, and delineates the domain structure. Choose the nodes, provide logins and passwords for individual assets or groups, and initiate the scan.

In moments, the scan completes and the collected information is stored in the TNI database. Your inventory of PCs and Macs is ready for use right away.

Active Directory Synchronization

For domain networks, TNI can align its data with Active Directory, allowing for an immediate reflection of the AD structure within the software and providing a comprehensive list of all users and computers in the domain. Just like scanning, AD synchronization can be scheduled for automatic updates.

Scheduled scanning

Organize a list of assets for future or recurring scans and instruct TNI on the preferred timing. Utilize the scheduler to set up sophisticated time-based triggers:

An unlimited number of scheduled tasks can be established with varied triggers to ensure your data remains current without manual intervention.


Windows Software Inventory

Centralized storage solution

The TNI storage system is designed for simplicity and efficiency. This PC inventory management system uses a standard folder on your hard drive to represent each networked computer as a separate file. Such organization allows for easy management; files can be effortlessly transferred to various storage locations or securely backed up as needed. 

To enhance collaborative efforts, simply share the storage folder with team members, allowing multiple users to access and work with the data from different computers. Security is paramount, so ensure your data's integrity by password-protecting your storage to prevent unauthorized access.

Server Inventory Management

Comprehensive hardware accounting

TNI makes hardware accounting comprehensive yet straightforward. You can easily attach detailed notes, inventory labels, and additional textual descriptions, as well as record price and purchase date information for each computer.

This centralized approach ensures all pertinent data is stored in one easily accessible location, making hardware inventory management both flexible and robust.

Network at a glance

Visualize your network with a tree diagram that shows a range of data: network name, IP address, inventory number, operating system icon and name, online status, and more. Our inventory monitoring system automatically identifies and flags virtual systems. All this information is searchable – just a snippet of knowledge about a computer allows you to quickly locate it among hundreds.


Keeping data organized

Our network inventory application allows you to delve into each scanned computer as though it were physically in front of you.

Access comprehensive details about hardware, operating systems, installed software, antivirus programs, user accounts, and more, all neatly categorized within the reports section.

Incorporate an unlimited array of computers and categories into a single report for thorough analysis.

Table reports

The report builder is designed to display asset inventory data in an easy-to-understand and detailed table format. You have complete control over the data that appears in your reports, tailoring them to meet your specific needs.

Printing, exporting, and automated report generation

Reports can be produced in either a summarized or detailed format, then copied to a spreadsheet processor, or exported to various formats including XLSX, PDF, RTF, CSV, HTML, and others.

For regular report generation, the Task scheduler automates this process. Set it up once, and it will routinely generate reports, export them in the format you select, and then distribute them via email or save them to an FTP server, ensuring you always have the latest data at your fingertips.


Custom barcodes for efficient inventory management

Utilize the power of scanning and printing custom barcodes with our barcode inventory management feature. This practice significantly speeds up the search for assets and minimizes the errors commonly associated with the manual identification of devices.

Total Network Inventory 6 is compatible with a wide array of both linear and two-dimensional barcodes, including QR, PDF417, and Code 93. These diverse types are suitable for various needs and can store varying amounts of information.

Integrate an external hardware or software scanner with Total Network Inventory, which allows you to assign a hotkey to quickly initiate a search for assets via barcode.

Server Software Inventory

Barcodes generation

Record and store manufacturer barcodes, such as those for hardware models and serial numbers, and attach an unlimited number of these identifiers to any asset.

Additionally, Total Network Inventory facilitates the generation of barcodes from predefined templates. This feature empowers the system to automatically produce a barcode embedding unique identifiers or important asset information like inventory numbers, device types, network names, or locations. This automation streamlines the asset management process, making it more efficient and error-resistant.
