Viewing Topology Map Device Details in a Pop-Up Dialog Box


In the Topology View of Build mode, the upper portion of the page shows the topology map, which is the main display area. In this area, you can double-click the zones that are displayed to expand and display the devices contained in that zone. The pop-up menu is accessed by double-clicking the group in the center pane that shows the topology map. Mouse over a device on the map to display a pop-up menu for that device.

In a geographically diverse network with several groups or zones, after you expand and view a particular group, you can also view the salient configuration details of devices contained in that group. Both the devices that are managed by Connectivity Services Director and the devices that are not managed by Connectivity Services Director, but have been only acquired as part of the CSD-Topology topology acquisition, are displayed in the expanded groups on the topology map. You can view important, high-level device details such as the Junos OS release that is running on a particular device for determining any Junos OS image upgrade as necessary and the device status. If you identify the status of the device to be down, you can then view the device configuration settings and take any corrective action.


Right-clicking the map area displays a pop-up menu for more functions. You can move the map by holding down and dragging the left mouse button. You can zoom in and out by using the mouse scroll wheel. Double-click an element icon to collapse the devices or network elements and view the entire site or zone as an icon.

Devices that are discovered as part of the topology acquisition by the CSD-Topology and are not managed devices in the Connectivity Services Director database are displayed in gray. Devices that are discovered by the CSD-Topology using BGP and MPLS and are managed devices in the Connectivity Services Director database are displayed in blue.

Mouse over a node icon or set of nodes and double-click to display a menu. When you mouse over a device or a node, the name of the device is displayed on a pop-up menu. The following fields are displayed in the pop-up dialog box when you mouse over the device or node:

  • Host Name—Hostname of the selected device or node

  • IP Address—IP address of the selected device or node

  • Device Status—Status of the selected device or node, such as Up or Down

  • View Details—Detailed information about the selected device or node. Click the link in View Details to open a pop-up dialog box that displays these details.

When you select a particular device by expanding a group or zone and clicking the device, the device icon is highlighted and displayed.

To view device details in a pop-up dialog box:

  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.

  3. In the graphical representation of the topology displayed on the right pane, select the group for which you want to view the device details by double-clicking the group.

    The group is expanded and the devices contained in the group are displayed within a circle.

  4. Mouse over the device or node for which you want to view the configuration settings.

    The device pop-up menu is displayed.

  5. Click the View Details link from the pop-up menu.

    The Device Details dialog box is displayed on the right pane, which contains the following fields:

    • Host Name—Hostname of the device or node

    • Serial Number—Serial number of the chassis component. The serial number of the backplane is also the serial number of the router chassis. Use this serial number when you need to contact Juniper Networks Customer Support about the router or switch chassis.

    • OS Version—Operating system firmware version running on the device or node

    • Device Family—Device family of the device or node, such as JUNOS for MX Series routers

  6. Click the Close icon at the top-right corner of the pop-up dialog box to return to the topology map.
