Topology Map Window Overview


This topic describes the topology map window of the IP/MPLSView Web interface.

The topology map is the main work area in IP/MPLSView and displays important link and node properties. Links are color-coded according to a specified link property such as protocol, events, or status. Links can be displayed by link utilization. Nodes are displayed as icons differentiated by vendor.

The topology incorporates collapsible node-group views. You can also view node locations on the world map.

Topology Map Window Layout

The topology map window is divided into two areas. The left pane is used to change the settings of the topology view. The right pane map displays the network. Right-clicking on the map opens a pop-up menu for more functions. Move the map by holding the left mouse button and dragging. Zoom in and out by using the mouse scroll wheel. Figure 1 shows the topology map window layout.
