Enhanced visualizations for application mappings in v11.4.0

We are excited to announce v11.4.0 with following changes:

Global and local panes with more options


impact-charts-panes

Previously, In an impact chart, as the number of nodes grew, it sometimes became difficult to see all the connections. In some cases, if the amount of data was large enough, the browser was unable to render it correctly and gives up after a few minutes.

We have simplified the impact chart to overcome both issues with the following approach:

  • There are now two panes side by side.
  • The left pane shows only device to device connections. It does not show services, service ports or applications. This pane displays well for most scenarios; however, if a single device has too many connections, it might be a bit busy.
  • If you double-click on a device in the left pane, the right pane will show one up and one down connection for the highlighted device. It will also show only services, remote connections, and applications.
  • By default, only services with listening ports and IPs with devices are shown but you can check a box to see all services and/or all IPs.
  • The building/room/rack hierarchy display is simplified.

 

Also the new changes show listening device and remote device groups using different colors.

We are still planning some near-term future enhancements:
1. We are planning to change the color scheme a bit
2. We are planning to make the arrows more consistent for the service connections.
