Proper preparation before the actual network assessment is important, especially because it saves time. Preparation includes defining the scope of assessment and planning length of assessment, for setting customer expectations. This stage also necessitates things like enabling SNMP on network devices to be able to perform a network assessment, defining SNMP community strings (v1 and v2c) or username/password (v3) in accordance with the tools to be used, editing access rules on the computer that's to be used for performing the assessment etc.
For network assessment, various tools are needed; these tools belong to different categories, which are-
The post-assessment reports and recommendations
