NetworkView is a software that allows us to identify devices in a network range . Here is the website .

I would have liked to make some tweaks to how it works etc to customize it for my application .

However unfortunately , it is not open sourced . Does anyone know of a similar tool but is open source . would be of great help

The closest thing I know of is Wireshark, but that seems like only a partial solution. You'd need something to interpret the data from it to get the rest of the way to Network View, it would seem. –  Doc Jul 6 '11 at 20:21

I've seen Nagios used to great effect, and it is open source. I also have used Mikrotik's The Dude for network management but sadly it is not open source, but certainly very versatile!

Have you looked at NeDi?
