Viewing the Service Path by Using the Topology Map Service Shortcut Menu
A service path is a connector that displays the LSP configured for a particular service on a device in the Topology View. Because of a large number of services that might be configured among devices in a topology, it is required to distinguish only the LSPs or service paths that connect from one device to another device. In such a case, you can select a service displayed in the Topology View and choose to hide or show the service path for analysis purposes.
In the Topology View displayed in Build mode on the Connectivity Services Director GUI, mouse over a service and right-click to display a menu. When you mouse over a service, the name of the service is displayed as a tooltip.
To hide or display a service path associated with a device in the Topology View:
- Select Topology View from the Views list in
the Connectivity Services Director application.
The topology map of the sites or zones and the devices configured in each zone using the CSD-Topology is displayed.
- Select the Service tab on the lower portion
of the page.
The service details are displayed in a table.
- Select the check box beside a service configured for devices
in the topology.
The service paths that traverse the different devices on which the selected service is configured are displayed as highlighted lines in the Topology View.
Right-click a service path and select one of the following options available on the shortcut menu:Hide Service Path—Removes the LSPs highlighted in the Topology View.Retrieve Service Path—Retrieves an LSP associated with the service path.
Starting from Connectivity Services Director Release 2.0R4, you can also select Retrieve Service Path to retrieve an LSP associated with a service path.Show Service Path—Displays the LSPs associated with the service.
