When mapping out a network for your customer, The Dude can help you a lot. It can do more than just showing you icons which represent devices on the network. When checking for some info, you just need to hover on the icons and it shows you its recent bandwidth usage, type of services available, and even more information. By right clicking, you can access a menu where you can open a device in a lot of different ways, like for example ftp, terminal, http and many others. You can also make notes on the device which you can use for reference for future use. You can also ping by using that menu.

You can connect to a test network provided by Mikrotek which is 159.148.147.209. Here, you can check out what it does and it has a cool interface whenever you check on the devices. The dude can really help you finish the task needed with the help of a network primer.

Monitoring networks using The Dude makes the task easy. Just specify what subnets you need to monitor, run tests in a small subnet if you have a big network. You actually need only three folders when monitoring a server, notification, Devices, and probes folders. The dude actually has 15 more folders which means it has a lot more features.

The Probes folder lets you check out the services you can monitor. Here you will find SMTP, HTTP, and Netbios to name a few. With The Dude, you can also monitor switches, disk space, routers, memory, and a lot more, creating your own probes would be easy.

The Dude really does a great job, it is way different from other monitoring tools, different in a good way of course. It can actually compete with other commercial monitoring tools. For other people who have used The Dude, a lot have said that it is just like a toy, unless of course if you are going to use it for complex networks. There are a few minor issues in this tool though, just a few glitches, but it is still recommended even for guys who are a bit techie. When using this tool, it is much better if you install it and then remove it after using it since it may cause some problems with network traffic.
