    Searching for Nodes or Nodes with Asset Information

    You can search for nodes or for nodes with asset information in the Network Monitoring workspace by using different search criteria.

    To access the Network Monitoring Search page:

    1. On the Junos Space Network Management Platform UI, select Network Monitoring > Search.

      The Search page, which is divided into the following sections, appears:

      • Search for Nodes—You can search for nodes by using various fields or view all nodes and interfaces.
      • Search Asset Information—You can search for node asset information using various criteria or view all nodes with asset information.
      • Search Options—This table provides tips about the various search fields on the Search page.

    This topic has the following sections:

    Searching for Nodes

    You can search for nodes by using different parameters, or view all nodes or all nodes and their interfaces:

    • To search for nodes:
      1. You can search for nodes by using one of the following parameters:
        • To search for a node using the node name, enter the full name or a part of the name in the (non-case-sensitive) Name containing field.

          Note:

          • If you enter a part of the name, the search results return a list of nodes that contain the characters that you entered. For example, entering MX lists all the nodes that contain the characters “MX” within the node name.
          • Use _ (underscore) to represent a single character wildcard and % to represent a multicharacter wildcard.
        • To search using the node or interface IP address, enter the full IP address or a part of IP address in the TCP Address Like field.

          Note:

          • If you enter a part of the IP address, the search results return a list of nodes that match the IP address that you entered. For example, entering *.204.*.* lists all the nodes that contain 204 in the second octet.
          • You can also use a combination of the following:
            • A single * (asterisk) as a wildcard for an octet
            • A hyphen to specify an octet range
            • A comma to demarcate two or more numbers within an octet

            For example, 192.168.*.*, 192.*.0,1,2.1-10, and so on

          • For IPv6 addresses, you must enter the full IP address and not the shortened form; however, * (asterisk) is supported as a wildcard.
        • To search for nodes based on the interface alias, name, or description:
          1. Select the interface parameter on which to search for the node from the list:
            • Select ifAlias to search using the interface alias.
            • Select ifName to search using the interface name.
            • Select ifDescr to search using the interface description.
          2. Select whether you want to search for interfaces that contain the interface parameter (contains) or are an exact match (equals) to the interface parameter.
          3. Enter the text that you want to search for in the text box.

            Note: The wildcard characters are the same as the ones used in the Name containing field.

        • To find nodes providing a specific service, select the service from the Providing service field.
        • To search for nodes based on the interface MAC address, enter the full or partial MAC address (non-case-sensitive) in the MAC Address like field.

          Note:

          • The wildcard characters are the same as the ones used in the Name containing field.
          • The octet separators in the MAC address (hyphen or colon) are optional.
        • You can search for nodes based on whether they are devices managed by Junos Space (space) or nodes in the Junos Space fabric (fabric using the Foreign Source name like field.
      2. Click the Search button corresponding to the search parameter that you specified. For example, if you searched for nodes by using the TCP/IP Address like field, click the Search button corresponding to that field.
        • If the search parameter that you entered exactly matches an existing node, the subsequent page displays the details of the node.
        • If the search parameter that you entered matches two or more nodes, the subsequent page displays the nodes and their interfaces.
        • If the search parameter that you entered does not match any node, the subsequent page displays a message indicating that no nodes match.
    • To view all nodes, click the All nodes link.

      The subsequent page displays all nodes.

    • To view all nodes and their interfaces, click the All nodes and their interfaces link.

      The subsequent page displays the nodes and their interfaces.

    Searching for Nodes with Asset Information

    You can search for nodes based on the node asset information or view all nodes that contain asset information:

    • To search for nodes based on asset information:
      1. You can search for nodes by using one of the following parameters:
        • To search for a nodes belonging to an asset category, select the category from the Category list.
        • To search for nodes based on a specific asset information field:
          1. Select the asset information field that you want to search for using the Field list.
          2. Enter the text that you want to search for (non-case-sensitive) in the Containing text field.

            Note:

            • If you enter a part of the asset information field, the search results return a list of nodes that contain the characters that you entered. For example, selecting City and entering York lists all the nodes with asset information that contain the characters York in the City field.
            • Use _ (underscore) to represent a single character wildcard and % to represent a multicharacter wildcard.
      2. Click the Search button corresponding to the search parameter that you specified. For example, if you searched for nodes by using the Category field, click the Search button corresponding to that field.
        • If the search parameter that you entered matches one or more nodes, the subsequent page displays the asset link and the node link for each node.
        • If the search parameter that you entered does not match any node, the subsequent page displays a message indicating that no nodes match.
    • To view all nodes that have asset information associated with them, click the All nodes with asset info link.

      The subsequent page displays the asset link and the node link for each node with asset information.
