The Topology Explorer and Topology Map feature provides the complete representations of your topology.

There are different kinds of topological information. For example:

  • Devices, logical groups such as IP networks and VLANs, and other infrastructure elements (such as network connections) that compose the domains managed by underlying Managers.
  • User-defined groups of elements (configured by your administrator).
  • Business elements such as application services, service offerings (such as Web hosting contracts), and service subscribers (such as customers, business units, or corporations). Service information and service classes cannot be available for your site.
Topology is represented in a tree format as in the map tree and the Topology Explorer or by map icons in a Topology Map.
