network atlas , link color, description reflecting events,alarms, utilisation

network atlas , link color, description reflecting events,alarms, utilisation

as it is write in $SUBJ.   In network atlas i would like to see links reflecting alarms on links, link utilisation etc.

my proposal is following:

-external event can triger color, label change.

-link metric should offer link utilisation, and display % utilisation of link by color & text

this is very important, so we do not have to use external tool ( weather map )

I hope this gets more votes.  I would *love* network weathermap type functionality.

We have to keep a cacti instance running solely for the weathermap. I showed my boss a network atlas map the other day and his immediate response was "will it change the color of the links?" Needless to say he was disappointed when I told him it wouldn't.

Also hoping that this happens! We have a very extensive Solarwinds deployment and currently using WeatherMaps on a big screen in front of the boss' office which we would much rather prefer to replace with a solution in our existing environment, being Solarwinds.

Looking very forward to this and really hope it happens soon!

This is a great Idea.. we currently use the network atlas to provide a wall board for monitoring our core network..

To show traffic we use the $(InBps) and $(OutBps) to represent the current utilisation of the interfaces but would be optimal to have the colors and potential bulging of the lines to represent the traffic..

This gets my vote fo sure

I would add one additional feature.  Child map status can be rolled up to higher level maps- with one exception.  When a node or link goes into an unknown (grey) status, this does not roll up. It definitely needs to IMHO.  We create maps to see status.  If something, anything, changes on a nested map, wouldn't you want that to be visible at the highest level so you could remedy the issue?

agreed, I did the same with my tooltips

II'll vote for this but really won't use it until they fix the need for Orion to refresh the entire page to update an element status (which just so happens too be MY feature request Orion Next Gen User Interface).
