What is Brad in The Box (bitB)?

bitB is a powerful and affordable network diagramming and data collection software that enables you to quickly create dynamic network topologies and instantly view collected network data

 
bitB At A Glance
  • Automatically discovers network devices and typically deploys in less than 30 minutes
  • Collects data the same way you do — Command Line Interface (CLI)
  • Dynamically creates Logical and Physical Topology maps
  • Automatically updates topology maps every 5 minutes
  • Dynamic Data Grids provide access to the collected information. The data grids can be filtered, sorted, searched and exported to Excel and other formats.
  • Runs on Windows 10 and later with a minimum of 4GB of RAM and 20GB of free disk space

 

bitB 4.0 Features

 


 

bitB v4, code-named the Saratoga Build, was released today. bitB v4 includes six new features!

 
 
Check it out!! 
   

 

#1 Location Groups

 

You can now view a very large organization on a single map. Take advantage of bitB's new Location Groups. With Location Groups, you assign each network subnet to a location. Once the subnet is assigned to a location, bitB will display an auto-tabbed drawing of all your sites. bitB will use the location information to automatically create tabs based on any level of your Location Group hierarchy. The Saratoga Build offers six levels of granularity for Location Groups. You can assign locations from continent or state all the way down to floor and closet. 

 

#2 Image Selection: Network Devices and End Nodes

 

bitB does a great job of dynamically mapping your network and providing logical visual representations of the infrastructure. However, there may be times when you would like to use different images than the defaults for the network devices and end nodes. No worries. We don't take it personally. You now have that freedom with bitB. bitB can use images from any Visio stencil with the .vssx extension. And, if you have the older Visio .vss stencil, let us know, and we will convert it for you. With image selection, you can change the images for different device types, different vendors, or a single device.

 

#3 Mapping and Polling: End Nodes

 

It doesn't matter if your network is large or small. The more you know about the devices connected to your network the better you can prepare for calls or issues reported by end-users, server administrators, application owners, or end-user support staff. How many times has a user called and said, "I was able to connect to the server a couple of days ago and now I can't". Well, now bitB has you covered. bitB not only discovers network devices but can also discover and map end nodes - servers, workstations, printers, phones, etc. With a Physical or vPhysical map, you can see exactly where a user is connected. Is the computer connected to a switch or an IP Phone? No problem - you can see that! And, with the Logical Map, you can see what subnet the user is connected to. With bitB, you will see the MAC addresses for all devices in the network and all subnets.

 

#4 TCP Service Scanning and Polling: End Nodes

 

Let's take the mapping of End Nodes one step further. What if your company needs to show what services are running on your End Nodes (e.g., servers, workstations, phones, printers, etc.) And they would like to visually see where these devices are located in the network. No worries. bitB can show that. Once an End Node is discovered, bitB will scan the device and show what TCP ports are open on a device. And, wait for it, with some services, bitB automatically changes the device image to match the service discovered on the device.

 

#5 Network Device Discovery using SNMP

 

Although we prefer to discover and parse device information from secure connections or through encrypted API calls, bitB can now discover using SNMP to allow for a broader reach of devices. 

 

#6 Meraki API Discovery, Polling, and Tunnel Overlay

 

bitB now supports Meraki discovery using the Meraki API to the Meraki Cloud Controller. Using an API is a very efficient way to discover devices. The data returned from the Meraki controller is returned in a specific format which makes data collection much easier. The API also allows bitB to poll the Meraki Cloud Controller, removing the need for bitB to communicate with Meraki Network Devices directly.


 

bitB Features

 


 

You're no longer required to spend countless hours connecting to every network device to create network drawings. bitB will automatically and continuously connect to all devices and collect the information.

Physical & Logical Grids

 

 

The grids contain the data from the Physical and Logical drawings.  You can easily group, sort and filter the grids and export the data to a number of formats.

Export Physical & Logical Drawings

 

You can export the Physical and Logical drawings to Visio, PNG, JPG, Flash and SVG.

Topology Maps

Topology Maps illustrate to you a point in time visualization of the network. Topology Maps facilitate a faster Meantime to Repair (MTTR) of the network. Topology Maps can also be referred to as Network Drawings. The two terms are interchangeable. Network Drawing is more commonly used to illustrate a Topology Map saved for printing or manual editing.

Logical Topology

A Logical Topology includes all Layer 3 devices. There are no Layer 2 devices in the Logical Topology. With a Logical representation of your network you can easily follow the flow of traffic through the network.

  • Subnet Ovals
  • Automatic Layouts
  • Device List
  • Export Topologies

     

Logical-1

vPhysical Topology

A vPhysical Topology includes physical devices and virtual representations of the physical hardware. The Cisco ASA and the Cisco Nexus 7k are examples of devices that can be virtualized physically. The ASA uses Security Context and the Nexus 7k uses Virtual Device Context. The vPhysical Topology contains Physical and Virtual Interfaces and Layer 2 VLANs. The vPhysical allows you to visualize the virtual path through your physical environment.

 

vPhysical-1

Physical Topology

A Physical Topology includes physical devices and physical interfaces. The Physical Topology can be shown with or without VLANs. There is no virtualization of devices or interfaces on the Physical Topology. With a Physical Drawing, you can disconnect all cables between network devices and reconnect them

  • Automatic Layouts
  • Device List
  • Export Topologies
