In the left panel, you can select a Global Manager from the Manager menu to see maps for that manager. The menu lists attached Global Managers. Domain Managers are not listed in the menu.

At the bottom of the left panel are two tabs:

  • The Topology tab displays a map tree that is a hierarchical representation of the attached Global Managers, classes of infrastructure elements, logical groups such as IP networks and VLANs, business services, software services, and the instances available for each class.

  • The Groups tab displays user-defined groups of topological elements if the groups exist. (Your administrator can create groups. The VMware Smart Assurance Service Assurance Manager Configuration Guide includes information on groups.)

    Different types of maps are available for the instances in each tab.
