Viewing the Network Topology

 

Starting with Contrail Networking Release 1907, the Contrail Command UI provides visual representation of the network topology. All devices within a fabric are displayed in a single view.

Note

You must be running AppFormix version 2.19.11.

The Topology view supports basic manipulations such as dragging nodes, zooming in and out, fitting to view, in addition to having different layout visualizations. User-edited network layout is saved in the database so any change in network devices layout is preserved across sessions.

Topology view displays the following:

  • Network devices

  • Hosts

  • Compute instances in hosts

  • Edges connecting network devices and Contrail Networking vRouter hosts but not BMS alone.

Three views are supported:

  • Radial

  • Vertical

  • Horizontal

Select Infrastructure > Fabrics > <fabric name> > Topology View. Following are two example radial views.
