Conversion Options Tab


Click on the Conversion Options tab to specify any options to be considered when the configuration files are collected and parsed into the IP/MPLSView network model.

If customized reports need to be saved between collections, the network Spec File can be specified.

You can specify a Graph Coordinates (graphcoord) and Group (group) file to set default map display coordinates and grouping. This can be set to any file except $HOME/livenetwork_output_directory/group.x and $HOME/livenetwork_output_directory/graphcoord.x which are special reserved filenames. For each individual user, these two reserved files will be used, if they exist, to set the graphical coordinates and grouping. If they do not exist, then any graphcoord and group file specified in the Conversion Options tab will be used.

If you would like to include hosts other than routers and switches in your network model, check the option “Create dummy nodes for unrecognized files.”

If you have devices with dual routing engines, then browse for the Node Alias File. For the format and explanation of this file, see Dual Routing Engine Support.

If you would like to stitch by OSPF neighbor information, select “Stitch by OSPF Neighbor” and browse for the directory containing ospf neighbor output (For Cisco, this is the output of the commands “terminal length 0” and “show ip ospf neighbor”).

In the special case if you would like to stitch together fxp0 interfaces, check the option “Don’t ignore management interfaces”.

Many of the other options are the same as the Misc tab of the Import Config Wizard. For more information, refer to the Router Data Extraction chapter of the Router Feature Guide for IP/MPLSView.
