9 Visualisations to help you diagnose your networks

9 Visualisations to help you diagnose your networks

Megamon provides visual representations of data from both broad and highly specific perspectives. Illustrations, charts, and maps give you a bird’s eye view of your entire organisation, site, device group, or network at a glance. Graphs of historical data and latency graphs show you data for a specific interface on a specific device at a given point in time, or even real-time.


1. Dashboard

The Megamon homepage provides an overview of your entire organization, including visual representations of sites and device groups, and a chart of the top ten interfaces.


2. Site Overview

The Overview tab on the Sites page displays charts for the current alerts and top ten interfaces, and visual representations of the device groups that are present at that site and their current statuses.


3. Network Overview

The Overview tab on the Networks page displays a diagram of the network where the router is at the centre, network nodes are distributed around it, and incoming and outgoing connections and the number of connections is illustrated by the line colour and number label. 


4. Device Latency

The Latency tab of the Device page displays a graph to represent the latency data for that device where the response time in milliseconds is plotted against time. You can zoom in to a specific period of time by selecting an area of the graph. 


5. Device Storage

The Storage tab of the Device page displays pie charts to represent storage usage so that you can see at a glance whether you need to add storage. The colours that are used in the table below the pie charts indicate whether the storage use is nearing a warning or alert threshold. You can set these thresholds and have Megamon monitor your storage use so that you are notified if and when the usage nears the thresholds.


6. Device Graphs

The Graphs tab of the Device page displays graphs for that device that visually represent traffic, memory, CPU usage, and more. You can add and manage the graphs that display for a given device or even set default graphs to display for a given type of device. You can also set the graph period and size and search for a specific graph dynamically by using the graph search box.


7. Switch Overview

Megamon provides a visual representation of how switches are configured for monitoring, so you can easily see which ports and VLANs are monitored and whether they’re up or down. The Overview tab of the Switches page displays a visual representation of how that switch is configured. You can see which ports in the switch are trunk connections, how other ports have been assigned, and whether each port is up or down.


8. Switch Port Overview

When you select one of the ports, Megamon displays a real-time graph of the throughput rate for that port on the Overview tab. The monitoring, operational, and administrative statuses are also indicated through use of colour.


9. Switch Port Traffic

Traffic graphs for that port display on the Graphs tab. Bits per second are plotted against time in Daily, Weekly, and Monthly graphs so you can see how the port has performed over time.

From a specific port on a specific router on a specific network to a bird’s eye view of your entire organization, Megamon visualisations give you a complete picture of your networks.
