Introduction

Revision 1.0.0 – (08-15-2018)

 

Network map is a very powerful tool for graphical representation of your monitored services. You can upload images and create a map that will represent different portions of your network, or take a pictures of your switches, routers, servers, etc.. and use it. You can give your imagination free reign to create all kinds of illustrations.

This software can be applied to a variety of business IT processes. These include:

  • Representation of a logical network view with correlating current states
  • Creation of simplified views for end users or help desk
  • Visualization of network connections or VPN routes
  • Summary information from an entire physical site or data center in a regional view
  • Link status information with the server rack location
  • View hardware and correlating monitoring states

Reading Time: < 1 minuteNetwork Map is a visualization add-on for APM that can be used to visualize APM data.

APM | Status | Network Map

For example, it can display IT processes such as a mail system or a network infrastructure. It will dynamically update the maps objects after certain intervals to reflect the current state.

Here are some examples of what Network Map can do:

  • Visualize a complete Host or Service group as a single icon
  • Display the summary state of a Host and all its services
  • Sub-categorize icons representing a complete Map in a single icon (drill down)
  • Visualization of complete IT processes using self drawn graphics
  • Visualization of network traffic using weathermap lines

Note Network Map should be used only after all components that you want to monitor have been entered into APM, because when components are monitored, they will be available as objects to be placed on a map with this tool.
