Filtering Devices, LSPs, and Services for Sorting and Segregating the Topology View


In network environments that contain several thousands of devices, it might be helpful to sort and segregate the devices and their associated LSPs and links, based on certain filter conditions. You can specify the criteria that must be matched for the network elements shown in the Topology View. For example, you can specify that only devices that are up or only LSPs for devices on which IP services are defined must be displayed.

To specify the filter criteria for segregating the displayed elements in the Topology View:

  1. From the Junos Space user interface, click the Build icon on the Connectivity Services Director banner.

    The workspaces that are applicable to Build mode are displayed on the Tasks pane.

  2. From the View selector, select Topology View.

    The topology map of the sites or zones and the devices configured in each zone using the CSD-Topology is displayed on the upper portion of the page. A table with details of devices, services, links, and LSPs is displayed on the lower portion of the page.

  3. Click the Filter icon (the funnel symbol) at the top-left corner of the Topology View window.

    The Filter dialog box is displayed.

  4. On the Devices tab, mouse over the tab to view the drop-down menu and do the following:
    • Select Show All, Up, or Down from the Device Status list to display the devices that are in any state, in the up state, or in the down state respectively.

    • Select the Show Unmanaged Devices check box to display the unmanaged devices that are present in the links in the topology. Alternatively, clear this check box to view only the managed devices in the topology.

    • Select Custom Group, OSPF Area, or AS Number from the Group by list to group the devices in the topology based on the configured custom groups, OSPF area, or autonomous system (AS) number respectively.

  5. On the Links tab, mouse over the tab to view the drop-down menu and do the following:
    • Select the Show All Links check box to display all the links originating from each node in the topology.

    • Select the Show Optical Links check box to display only the optical links originating from each node in the topology.

    • Select Up or Down from the Operational Status list to display links that are either active or disabled.

  6. Click Filter to save the filter criteria.

    The dialog box is closed and you are returned to the Topology View.
