Network view

The Network view is designed to manage the capacity of network devices and links, providing ready and valuable answers to decision makers.
By presenting key capacity metrics and relevant charts, the Network View enables you to:

  • Understand the current network infrastructure capacity and usage
  • Identify future capacity saturations

both in terms of network device resources (like CPU, memory, backplane and ports) and interfaces traffic.

Furthermore, the view provides user-extensible filtering capabilities that allows you to slice and dice your entire network infrastructure and examine it from different viewpoints.

Certified data sources

The certified data sources for these views are as follows:

  • Entuity
  • HP NNMi

You must configure and run one of these ETL modules to import data into the view.



If you are importing data from an ETL module other than the certified data source, then ensure that you have all the metrics populated in the ETL module so that the view shows the data.


Certain metrics are required for these views. If the metrics are not imported into the TrueSight Capacity Optimization Data Warehouse, then corresponding columns are blank. Particularly for Data Explorer view for this platform, you must import specific metrics for some of the charts to be available.


Data visibility 

The views display data for all systems of the following types:

  • Network Devices
  • Network Switches
  • Network Firewall
  • Network Load Balancer

To access the view, in the TrueSight Presentation Server, select Menu > Capacity Views > Network > Network View. 
The home page, Device Overview, contains all network devices collected in the system and makes available usefull filters to group the devices.

In order to use all the view functionalities, Entuity and HP NNMi ETL integrators must be configured to load appropriate network devices performances, interfaces traffic and errors. In case ETL tasks are configured to import only a subset of the metrics, corresponding sections of the View will show unpopulated.
