Applications Menu Overview
From the Applications menu in the top menu bar, you can perform some of the functions also available in the network information table including provisioning LSPs, diverse LSPs, and multiple LSPs. You can also configure LSP delegation, set up optimization, and access reports.
The Top Traffic option displays a pane on the right side of the Topology window that lists the computed Top N Traffic over X period of time by Node, Interface, LSP, or Interface Delay. Select N and X by clicking on the currently selected settings in the lower right corner of the display.
Two utilities that open in separate browser windows or tabs are also launched from this menu:
Bandwidth Calendar—Used to visualize and manage scheduled LSPs.
The bandwidth calendar timeline is empty until you schedule LSPs.
Event View—Displays events coming in from the topology server. You have a number of options for how this information is organized and displayed.
You can also launch the EPE Planner application from the Applications menu. Built on the NorthStar Egress Peer Engineering (EPE) functionality, the EPE Planner application allows you to formulate plans that direct traffic demands exiting your network to a peer operator network in the most cost effective way.
