An arrow represents the connection between every two servers and/or the clients and shows the port number connecting them, the protocol, and the communication direction. For example, Port: 80, Protocol: HTTP.
An arrow is displayed for each port and each direction. The color of the arrow indicates how recent the latest activity was, as follows:
- Green: This application map was accessed within the last five minutes
- Light orange: The last access to this application map was between five minutes and 25 minutes ago
- Gray: This application map was not accessed within the last 25 minutes
Notes: The connection failure threshold is configurable via the Configuration/Parameters screen, the ‘Connection failures sensitivity’ field.
The protocol names are presented according to IANA Service Name and Transport Protocol Port Number Registry.
Contact Faddom support if you prefer different name assignments.
Connections displayed as dotted lines indicate “manual connections”,. i.e. these connections have been manually added by a user and therefore will always remain a part of the server map of this application map unless manually removed.
Entities Connections Details
Clicking a connection will display additional information about it:
- Connection Name: combination of source => target.
- Port: port number & identified protocol (if applicable)
- Protocol: TCP/UDP
- Last Seen: How long ago the last activity was detected.
- Frequency: The average frequency of activity on this link in the last 24 hours
- Client reset count: the number of client resets (server not responding to communications) during the last minute of activity of this connection. This usually indicates high load and low response time on the server-side.
- Server reset count: the number of server resets (client not responding to communications) during the last minute of activity of this connection. This usually indicates a high load and long response time on the client side.
- Show Charts: View historical charts of the connection over time.
Entities Connections Actions
Click specific connection->More to view available actions:
- Remove from baseline: Removes the connection from the saved baseline.
- Remove from baseline and filter: Removes the connection from the saved baseline and filters it from future traffic processing.
- Filter connection: Adds the connection as a filter to the discovery, which means it would be filtered out in the traffic processing.
- Filter out port: Adds the port as a filter to the discovery, which means it would be filtered out in the traffic processing.
