Application Maps Overview

Application Maps enable the user to consume the app’s topology, status, and recent changes.

To view your application maps browse to Map->Application Maps.

Each map displays a topology of your business application, including its entities (VM’s, etc.), entity dependencies, and application’s clients.

 

View Application Topology

Click on the app from the Application Maps list, and its topology will be displayed to you in the right pane.

The app topology is displayed according to discovered entities in the app and their dependencies.

Each entity can be explored with further details by clicking on the entity – Application Entities.

Dependencies in the application map are represented by the connections between the entities and their respective color – Application Entities Connections.

 

Map Display Mode

Application maps can be shown in different options: All, Current, Baseline, Compare.
