Visualize Network Topology

You can have multiple project connections in GigaVUE‑FM. Each project can have multiple monitoring sessions configured within them. You can select the connection and the monitoring session to view the selected subnets and instances in the topology view.

To view the topology diagram:

1.   From the left navigation pane, select Traffic > VIRTUAL > Orchestrated Flows > Kubernetes. The Monitoring Session page appears..
2. In the Monitoring Session page, click the Topology tab.
3. Select a connection from the Select connection... drop-down list. The topology view of the subnets and instances is displayed.
4. (Optional) Select a monitoring session from the Select Monitoring Session... drop-down list. The monitored subnets and instances change to blue.
5. Select one of the following check boxes:
o   Source— Displays the topology view of the source leader in a bidirectional clock relationship (formerly master) target interfaces that are being monitored.
o   Destination—Displays the topology view of the destination target interfaces where the traffic is being mirrored.
o   Other—Displays the topology view of the GigaVUE V Series Controllers, G-vTAP Controllers, monitoring tools, and targets that are being used in the connection.
6. (Optional) Hover over or click the subnet or VM Group icons to view the subnets or instances present within the group.

In the topology page, you can also do the following:

■   Use the Filter button to filter the instances based on the VM name, VM IP, Subnet ID, or Subnet IP, and view the topology based on the search results.
■   Use the Default View button to view the topology diagram based on the source interfaces of the monitoring instances.
■   Use the arrows at the right-bottom corner to move the topology page up, down, left, or right. Click the Fit-to-Width icon to fit the topology diagram according to the width of the page.
■   Use + or - icons to zoom in and zoom out the topology view.

At the right-bottom corner of the Topology page, there are arrows to move the page up, down, left, or right. There are also plus, minus, and full screen icons to zoom in and zoom out.

On the Topology page, you can also use the Filter button to filter instances based on the Instance Name Prefix, Instance IP, Subnet ID, or Subnet IP to view the topology based on the filtered results.

To remove a filter, click the Clear Filter button.
