Features  Topology Discovery

Traverse automatically discovers applications, networks, servers, and systems upon deployment

Automatically Maps Relationships Between Network Devices

Traverse discovers network connectivity, disks, controllers, VLANs, file systems, fiber channel switches, printers, SAN, NAS devices, and more.

In addition, Traverse discovers the capabilities, size, capacity, and other key attributes of each element, and the applications running on various devices, such as databases, active directory, radius, DNS, mail, and application servers.

With this information, Traverse builds the hierarchical topology map between your network devices such as switches, routers, VLANs, ATM/frame‐relay, and older generation bridges and hubs. Traverse maintains mappings and relationships between services and underlying components even in dynamic virtual environments.

Traverse includes an unmatched component template and signature library for IT infrastructure. This library provides detailed information on hundreds of the most commonly used infrastructure devices. As important, the library also contains intelligence on the key metrics for these devices.

With this library, Traverse saves time for users during:

  • Initial creation of topology maps, since much of the required data is prepopulated
  • Problem resolution by reducing extraneous metrics which can create noise in the data collected

Users can also create visual relationship maps between services and infrastructure, enabling better problem isolation and root‐cause analysis.
