Advanced Application Map Functionality

An arrow represents the connection between every two servers and/or the clients and the entry point.

Connection Details

Clicking a connection will open the Connection Properties screen which will show details of the connection with additional info regarding frequency and last seen timestamp. You also have the option to see a chart of the connection traffic over time.

You can also right-click on the connection and you have options to filter the connection. For a detailed explanation of connections, you can see our Connections on Application Maps guide

Server Actions

You can perform actions and view information on servers. To access the menu, you right-click on a server from a map or search results screen.


Add to impact set: Add the entity to the current impact set. Affected applications will be highlighted in the maps list on the left pane. You can also export impact data in the impact information pane.

Show incoming: show all incoming connections to the entity. These connections are displayed with a dashed line to reflect that they are not part of the original query. It’s possible to manually add it to the map by clicking the connection and selecting More/Add to the map
To clear the display of incoming connections, either select the server again, click Hide Incoming, or select Reset View from the View menu.

Show incoming: show all incoming connections from the entity.

Show outgoing: show all outgoing connections from the entity.

Filter out: filter out an entity so that it is not shown on the map. 

Filter all outgoing: Filter out all outgoing connections from the entity.

Show in search: redraws the Search screen, with this server as the searched server, so that all connections to and from this server are displayed.

Migration Assessment: Opens the migration assessment dialogue for this server. This shows the same information as the Migration Waves feature but for the individual server. See How to Use Migration Waves for further information.

Resolve DNS name: Performs resolve of the IP address of the entity to a DNS name. The action is performed by Faddom and requires access to the DNS server. If the server already has a DNS name, then it is updated. Note: Faddom uses reverse DNS lookup and performs the lookup automatically once per day

Create an Application Map: defines a new application map that starts with this entity. See New Application Maps for how to build application maps
