Figure 1-2 shows VMware products as they relate to XD Manager OTM to IP.
The XD Topology Adapter imports topology objects from OTM and IP as topology proxies. The XD Topology Adapter imports topology from IP and from OTM servers based on data from the client’s Inventory and Provisioning database. The XD Topology Adapter imports only the topology elements related to the connection points between the IP and Optical Network.
XD Manager OTM to IP looks at topological data from the Topology Servers then imports the cross-domain topology proxy objects from the OTM Analysis Servers and IP.
As failures occur, analysis is done by IP and by the Optical Transport Manager Domain Managers. The output of this analysis is received by XD Manager OTM to IP which then correlates the root cause problem of the failure to Service Assurance Manager (SAM).
