The features of simple search are as follows:
Example: VM, Host, VLAN, VXLAN, and so on
Some pre-defined types can be used to search for multiple related entity types.
Example: L2 Network represents VLAN, VXLAN, and Native L2 networks.
Auto-complete can be used to explore entity types and other prop
Example: MTU Mismatch Event, Membership Change Event, and so on
Problems or Changes can be used as keywords to search for all problems or change events
Show all the VMs
Show VM with name 'vm1'
Show all L2 networks (VLAN, VXLAN, Native)
Show all problem events
MTU Mismatch Events
Show all MTU Mismatch Events
To find entities matching a configuration property value
Example: <Name>, <IP Address>, <IP Address 1 - IP Address 2>, and so on
Different types of properties: String, Numeric, IP, Range, Reference, and so on
Reference is used to represent data center as a graph. So VM has a reference to Host, Cluster and so on
To find all entities with an applicable metric
Example: CPU Usage Rate, Network Usage Rate, and so on
This can be used to plan the security of the data center by analyzing the flows
Example: Plan Security Group 'SG_All', Plan Host 'Host-1', and so on
"Plan Security" can be used to plan security of the entire data center.
This can be used to show the path between two VMs or the path from VM to Internet
VM ‘dev1’ to VM ‘db1’
VM ‘dev2’ to Internet
Auto-complete can be used to explore more entity types and properties.
