About the Network Map Page
To access this page, click the Monitor tab and then select Network Map from the left-nav bar.
The Network Map page lets you view the topology of your network. The map shows sites and the connectivity between sites. A site represents a geographic location shared by colocated devices. You associate a device to a site during device discovery. The placement of a site on the map is dictated by the site's latitude and longitude coordinates. If no devices have been discovered, the map is unpopulated.
The icon includes an alarm indication. The presence of a dot in the upper right corner of the icon indicates the existence of active unacknowledged alarms. Red indicates the existence of active unacknowledged critical alarms. Amber indicates the existence of active unacknowledged major alarms. Yellow indicates the existence of active unacknowledged minor alarms. When multiple levels of alarm severity exist, the color reflects the level of the most severe alarm, with red being the most severe and yellow being the least severe. The absence of a dot indicates no active unacknowledged alarms, which implies one of the following:
all active alarms have been acknowledged, or
there are no active alarms
The color of the link indicates whether the link is up or down. Green indicates that the link is up. Red indicates that the link is down.
