Just wondering what tools people use to analyze Cisco Networks. Mosty routers and switches, configurations etc. What utilities do you use? What documents do you follow? How do you present it to the person requesting the information?
And on another type question that doesn't really go here, has anyone had any experience with the BroadBand Service Manager (BBSM)? I inherited one, and it is acting up on me. Is there any decent way to figure out if it has been compromised?
