    Network diagram like Google Swirl

    I was just wondering if anyone knew of some software that could help me create a network diagram with all the devices on the network on it that works like Google Swirl?

    So basically if I click on a network switch it opens that area up and show me what's connected to it, things like that..

    Am I hoping for way too much?

    Not sure it's as cool as the Google Swirl, but Spiceworks has network diagrams, but not sure how in depth they go. I'm still to find time to play with that part of it amidst the fixing of other networky stuff. lol..

    I've looked at The Dude before now, but never had time to use it properly.

    You can use The Dude for this, just takes a bit of time.

    I'll not bother looking into this then and I'll play with the Dude instead (that looks quite a nice new freebie to play with)
