Business Services maps can be launched for CE-VLAN notifications or objects. A user can launch a Business Services map for a CE-VLAN by using any of the following methods:
In a Notification Log Console, click a CE-VLAN notification and select Event > Show Map, or right-click the notification and select Show Map in the pop-up menu.
In a Topology Browser Console, right-click a CE-VLAN object and select Show Map in the pop-up menu.
In the topology tree of the Map Console, click a CE-VLAN object to display a Business Services map for the object, or right-click a CE-VLAN object and select Business Services in the pop-up menu.
In an opened topology map, right-click a CE-VLAN node and select Business Services in the pop-up menu.
Business Services map launched for a CE-VLAN ServiceOffering object is an example of a Business Services map that is launched for a CE-VLAN object.
A Business Services map shows dependent relationships through arrowed lines: The arrowed lines point from a business object to the object that the business object depends on. Impact notifications propagate in the direction opposite to the arrowed lines: The impact notifications propagate to a business object from the object that the business object depends on.
In Figure 33, when EVC object EVC-EVPL_EVC_1 is impacted, the degradation causes Business Impact Manager to generate an impact notification for CE-VLAN service objects SO-CEVLAN100 and SO-CEVLAN1-4094.
