Exploring CI relationships

BMC Atrium Explorer displays a map of the relationships between the selected CI and related CIs. To view relationships at all levels across your environment, you can traverse this map from one CI to another. For example, the selected CI might be a computer system that is related to a printer. You might traverse the map to see how that printer is related to other computer systems. BMC Atrium Explorer shows the relationship between the computer system, printer, and other computer systems.
