Junos Space Network Topology Overview

 

Network topology is the arrangement of various elements including nodes and links. It is the graphical representation of physical devices and their interconnection. The topology has the following three components:

  1. Physical topology

  2. Link topology

  3. IP connectivity

Each application registers itself to the topology framework so that you can view and change topology on the application layer. To view the network topology, select Application Network Platform > Network Monitoring > Topology.

In a network topology, you can:

  • Monitor the status and configurations of the discovered devices and their interconnections.

  • View source and destination information for the device interconnections that exist within the discovered topologies.

  • Select a service and view all the devices associated with the service.

  • Discover IS-IS configuration devices.

The network topology helps you to understand and visualize the physical and logical interconnection between the network devices and the services. It also enables you to view the end-to-end network and zoom into the segments of the network for management and troubleshooting.
