Viewing the Topology Map
The topology Map displays network element sites and links on a map of the world. The placement of a site on the topology Map is dictated by the site's latitude and longitude coordinates. These coordinates are specified in a site's Notes and can be modified using either the proNX Service Manager Dashboard or the PSM client. If no sites have been created, or if no coordinates have been configured, the Map is unpopulated.
This topology Map is independent of the topology Map in the PSM client. The placement of a site on the proNX Service Manager Dashboard topology Map is based on the configured latitude and longitude coordinates. The placement of a site on the PSM client topology Map is based on manual positioning.
- Click on the Map icon in the left sidebar.
The proNX Service Manager Dashboard reads the latitude and longitude coordinates stored on the PSM server for each site, and places the sites and draws the links on the topology Map. Only those sites with latitude and longitude coordinates defined are displayed.
- To pan around, click anywhere within the Map and drag the Map in any direction .
- To zoom in and out:
To zoom in, click the in the lower right corner. Alternatively, you can zoom in by double clicking anywhere on the Map or using your mouse scroll wheel.
To zoom out, click the in the lower right corner. Alternatively, you can zoom out by using your mouse scroll wheel.
If you zoom out such that two or more sites are on top of each other, a single cluster icon is displayed. To see the sites represented by the cluster icon, click on the cluster icon.
- To see information for a site, click on the site.
An information box appears in the upper left corner, displaying the following information for the site:
The name of the site.
The approximate address of the site. This address information is searched for and retrieved from an external database. It is only available if the browser machine has Internet access.
A visual indication of the number of alarms at the different severities for that site.
A list of network elements that belong to that site.
- To see information on a network element within a site,
click on the network element from within the site's information
A network element information box appears, displaying the following information for the network element:
The IP address of the network element.
The name of the element if it exists.
The type of network element.
A visual indication of the number of alarms at the different severities for that network element.
A link is available to take you to the network elements table, filtered for that network element.
- To search for a site, type the name of the site in the
search box in the upper left corner and click the search icon.
The topology Map zooms in and centers on the specified site, and the site information box appears in the upper left corner.
- To search for a network element, type the name or IP address
of the network element in the search box in the upper left corner
and click the search icon.
The topology Map zooms in and centers on the site containing the network element, and both the site and network element information boxes appear in the upper left corner.
- To see information on a link, click on the link.
The following information is displayed:
The source and destination network element IP addresses and names.
The source and destination equipment endpoints.
The state of the link.
The number of wavelengths used (applicable to DOL and ROADM links only).
If multiple links are represented, then information on all links is displayed.
- To zoom out to see all sites in the Map, click the icon in the lower right corner.
