  • To show a different layer, select a different layer from the Layer drop-down list.
  • Choose to show all neighbors or only specific ones (generic, leaf, spine, and so on).

The screenshot below is for Apstra version 4.2.1. Some menu tabs have been renamed, moved, and/or added since Apstra version 4.2.0.

The traffic heat layer is shown below. The colors represent different available/used capacity based on the current system level TX/RX, averaged to 2 minutes, by default. If the aggregated TX or RX across all the device interfaces is < 20% it's green . If it's between 21-40%, it's yellow and so on. For each 20% difference, capacity is shown with a different color. (Server color is calculated based on the interface counters of the leaf ports facing that server. To see RX/TX per interface for a single node, click the node. (The screenshot below is for Apstra version 4.2.1.)

If any of a device's deployed ports are > 81% of its capacity in either RX or TX, a new "Alert" icon is shown on the device. (The screenshot below is for Apstra version 4.2.0.)

Hovering over a node shows exact aggregated values.
