Network topology discovery is an important research sub-branch of network engineering and it is also the fundamental part of network management implementation. This article mainly discusses the automated discovery of Network topology, which is considered as an important function in IP network. In addition, based on the relevant theoretical knowledge, this article introduces SNMP-based and ICMP-based topology discovery in detail. With SNMP, the topology discovery could be easier to conduct the operation with rapider speed. Many technologies should be used if the topology discovery is used on some devices which don't support SNMP, such as the ICMP messages form. It uses trace route to trail the process of route and discover new equipments assembled by the equipment information in DNS.
