Topology Window


The topology (map) window is the main work area for any network model you load into the system. Multiple links displayed between nodes uses “line bending" to avoid hidden trunks in the topology. The topology incorporates node aggregation collapsible views. You can also view node locations via their geographic coordinates on the world map, NPA/NXX, or automatic layouts.

The topology window displays important link and node properties. Links are color-coded according to utilization. Alternatively, you can view links by other properties such as media, trunk type, vendor or domain/area. Nodes are color-coded by symbols, icons, or vendor types.

Path analysis can be performed in the topology window. The path function displays detailed path information between any two nodes found in the network based on factors such as routing method used, reserved and actual bandwidth allocation, link distance, or oversubscription.
