The Core Network Topology resource provides a visual representation of existing physical connections between monitored devices on your network.

For any two, directly connected nodes, NodeA and NodeB, the resource shows you how they are connected, as follows:

NODE

INTERFACE

CONNECTS TO

INTERFACE

ON

NODE

NodeA

>

An interface (IfA) on NodeA

><

An interface (IfB) on NodeB

<

NodeB

In this example, directly connected interfaces IfA and IfB are on nodes NodeA and NodeB, respectively.
