DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management

Internet Protocol address management (IPAM) is a means of planning, tracking and managing the Internet Protocol address space used in a network. Most commonly, tools such as DNS and DHCP are used in tandem to perform this task, though true IPAM will glue these services together so that each is aware of changes in the other. IPAM tools are increasingly important as new IPv6 networks are deployed with larger address pools, and more addresses that are not as easily human-readable as IPv4 addresses.
