Port Map / Topology

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

We use Domotz as our main network-monitroing tool for broadcast events.

It is a massive tool to improve our workflow during the setup of each new event. 

But we think, there is a goal-feature missing;

 

It would be a massive help, when the switch-interface would be showed in a map.

To see the network topology could help us in many diffrent points.
-> faster and detailed view of the entire network

-> overview of the trunk ports (they are always at a load of 80%

-> easier watch of which part of the setup is ready for show

 

What do other think about this?

 

greetings out of switerland!

Hi JoshFink,

Domotz  already has the ability to show which device is attached to each port of a switch. We do not have a "graphical" map yet, but definitely the feature is cool because if you go in the "Interfaces" tab of a switch, you can see which devices are attached to each port. On the other side, if you go into any device, you will see the link to the switch+port it is attached.

This is supported for any managed switch that support  SNMP in a standard way. If you have issues with your specific switch, I'd recommend to contact our support.

Good news is that our team is productizing what has been a PoC for a long time. Few benefits should be visible in 2 weeks (automatic Parent / Child relationship between devices). And within the first half of August we should also be able to show the Topology MAP of a network within Domotz.

 

I apologize for the delay, but in the last few months we have been completely absorbed by other activities to work better with HW manufacturer companies (I hope you notice the recent announcements about Crestron and you will see more soon in the future).

 

Stay tuned on the Release notes. This is something we will add soon.

Thank you all for your patience. After few months of testing, the first implementation (still beta) of the Network Topology Map is now live:

 

 

We will continue to add functionalities and improve the usability of that section in the next few months. However, as is, it already speed-up the troubleshooting and resolution of network related issues.

One thing I still miss in the map – and as well in the port settings – are trunks
 

e.g. two switches which are linked with fiber; on each switch two SFP ports which are put together as a trunk…
 

When I use Observium or LibreNMS, it works fine – as well these tools show the LLDP connections.
