HI Upendra, [Pls Rate if helps]

If my understanding of your question is not wrong, managing means Monitor:

MRTG the best tool in Industry wide to Monitor the Switch Status, CPU, Interface, Traffic, etc.,

MRTG tool requires MRTG.exe, RRD, Apache, Perl for Working in Unix & Windows. For more details visit:

Big Sister (in Unix):

Is also one of the Tool to Monitor all the Interface of Switch, CPU, Traffic, etc.,


Next, there are no other specific Third Party Software to Manage the Switches/Routers. Only "CISCO SDM" (Security Device Manager) - GUI based tool to Manage the Switches / Routers

PLS RATE / Vote if Helps

Before purchasing LMS, make sure you can justify the expenditure. Also, if you've never used LMS it can initially cause more headaches than it's worth.

Get the eval before you buy!
