Left Pane—Layers List


The Layers list gives you the option to exclude or include individual layer information in the topology map.

Figure 1 shows an example of the Layers list with IP and transport layer options.

Layers List

Use the Layers list to select the layers (IP or Transport or both) that you want to display. If you are not using the Multilayer feature, the Layers list contains only IP and is not an applicable filter.

The colors indicated in the Layers list are reflected in the topology map so you can distinguish the nodes belonging to the different layers. Figure 2 shows an example of a topology map that includes both IP Layer and Transport Layer elements. The dotted link lines indicate interlayer links.
