Performance Management: Network Diagnostics Overview

 

The Network Diagnostics Module allows you easily and directly access routers from the network topology map. It also provides ping, trace route from any router to another router in the network, and verification of connectivity from the user’s management station to other routers.

The Performance Management: Network Diagnostics chapter of the IP/MPLSView Java-Based Management and Monitoring Guide describes how to perform a variety of IP network diagnostics via the IP/MPLSView client. Note that many of the diagnostics are also accessible via the IP/MPLSView Web interface. For instructions on how to run diagnostics via the IP/MPLSView Web, see Performance Management.

Use these procedures to perform network diagnostics on the live network.

Prior to beginning this task, you must have a live network or a network model created from config files in your network. You should also have connectivity to your router network. See the Getting Started Guide for IP/MPLSView for instructions to get connected to your router network.

For an overview of IP/MPLSView or for a detailed description of each IP/MPLSView feature and the use of each IP/MPLSView window, refer to the IP/MPLSView Web-based Graphical User Interface Reference, IP/MPLSView Java-based Graphical User Interface Reference, or Router Feature Guide for IP/MPLSView.
