Overview

Diagrams help to visualize the network state information.

We had to change how the diagrams work to bring more functionalities soon. One of the key changes in the processing of the diagrams is done in the backend, which means you will be able to collect diagram information via the API, where it wasn’t possible before.

Diagram Types

Network

By default, when you click Network, all networks are displayed and the relationships between them. They are grouped into sites represented by a cloud for better visibility. You can double-click a cloud to explore further that specific site.

For more details on using the diagrams, check Network Viewer .

Sites Diagrams

Site diagrams display all devices discovered per site. Sites are automatically calculated based on the administrative domain boundaries, such as carrier networks and unmanaged infrastructure. Site boundary calculation can be configured in settings.

For more details on using the diagrams, check Network Viewer.

Routing

Routing diagrams display contiguously, directly interconnected routers to form a routing domain.

Switching

Switching diagrams displays individual spanning-tree instances or a composite switching domain. A unique Root ID identifies spanning-tree instances. The switching Domain is composed of contiguously connected spanning-tree instances, representing the maximum possible fault propagation in a Layer 2 failure domain.

End-to-End path

End-to-End path diagram displays a complete path between any two network endpoints or networks. Only the actual network path is displayed, and missing parts denote unavailable network information necessary for completing the routing process.

The End-to-End path can be found in Diagrams → End to end path or on any diagram using the Path Lookup menu on the left (see picture below).

End to end

For more details, check How to use Path Lookup.

Host-to-Gateway path

The Host-to-Gateway path diagram displays the Layer 2 path from every identified endpoint in the network to its active gateway router.

The Host to Gateway path can be found in Diagrams → Host to gateway path or any diagram using the Path Lookup menu on the left and selecting Host To Gateway (see picture below).
