The router tree window shows graphical representation of all the routers and their associated network interfaces.
This router tree is automatically built by the Discovery process. It is, however, also possible to add a new router manually.
Each IP address attached to a router interface exists as a single host in the directory. LoriotPro defines a router entity as a set of interfaces attached to an IP network and attached to each of them a unique reference called a routerID. The routerID is the first IP address of the first interface of the router object discovered or created.
Workspace, Router Tree
In the above screen capture, you see the C2500-11-7 router object, its interfaces and the associated IP address. For each of these IP addresses, there is a host object placed in the corresponding network (if you decided to keep this type of object presentation).
This strategy allows you to apply individual processes to interfaces. As we will see later, processes are used to display collected data in various formats.
To get the router associated function, select an item in the tree and right-click to call the context menu.
Router tree contextual menu
Or from the main menu:
Menu de l'arbre des routeurs
Double-clicking on a router object starts a telnet session on it.
Double-clicking on an interface calls up the host properties menu.
The detailed function will be seen in a subsequent chapter.
