I donâ??t think this is a reasonable understanding of Nanog. Nanog members ask each other for operational tool recommendations all the time, and since these products are right up the alley of Nanogâ??s mission â?? network operations â?? itâ??s a perfectly reasonable use of Nanog.
But you read a single comment without researching any Nanog history, which would immediately show you how frequently Nanog serves in just this kind of valuable role, THATâ??S unkind.

i don't think that this is a reasonable use of nanog. if you have research to present and then a question to ask, that's totally great. this is especially true if you can add evaluative criteria and information before asking questions from people who have relevant experience.
you read a single web page and are asking nanog to do your homework for you. that's unkind and is taking advantage of the attention and goodwill of the community here. this is becoming a pattern. please either do some research yourself and start a conversation substantively, or look to paid consultants to evaluate your software/hardware/datacenter space/networking gear etc.

What have you evaluated so far? Can you share your evaluation grid, how you selected the candidates, how you are weighting criteria and specific interesting findings so far?

Looking for IPAM recommendations, preferably open source, API is a plus (almost must, almost..). 40-50K IPs to be managed.
thanks in advance.
