Viewing Topology Map Link 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 click or right-click the connecting lines, which represent the links that transmit traffic between devices, to view the link details. The pop-up menu is accessed by double-clicking in the center pane that shows the topology map. Mouse over a link on the map to display a pop-up menu for that link.

For a specific zone and a set of devices in that zone, you can view the links connecting the devices. You can view the link details, such as the node identifier and the node IP address of the head end or originating router and the tail end or the destination router. These link details are useful for diagnosing and troubleshooting any link problems that cause traffic drops or loss in transmission of packets.


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.
