On Network Atlas, If we have a only map, We can configure for show status devices and link utilization between devices,
but If we have many map (We mean many child map), We can show the status of its child objects, but We cannot show link utilization between nested map.
Nested Map A (Building A Map) include access switch A1, access switch A2, distribute switch A1 - - - - - All Device can show status node and link utilization between node
Nested Map B (Building B Map) include distribute switch B1, core switch B1 - - - - - All Device can show status node and link utilization between node
In this problem
On diagram, distribute switch A1 on Nested Map A connected core switch B1 on Nested Map B,
If We create parent map show nested map child objects (Nested Map A) and nested map child objects (Nested Map B) ,
We cannot show link utilization between Nested Map A and Nested Map B.
How to configure for show link utilization between nested map?
The best option I can think of for this scenario would be to draw your parent map with Map A and Map B on it, then create a manual connection between them. Then on the manual link properties, you can associate the uplinks for distribution switch A to one side (the Map A side), and the Core switch B to the other side (the Map B side).
You can manually draw a link in Network Atlas:
Right click on the link and select properties. Here you can assign any monitored element to the link, so that it gets its status from the performance of said element.
Hope this helps,
