Map View and Navigation
There are several ways to view and navigate around your map.
Step 1 of 3: Use Left Navigation
You can quickly and easily find any map item using the left Navigation Pane. All map items are represented in one or more of twelve different categories. Simply click on any item to select that item and scroll the map to display the item in the center of the map window.
Step 2 of 3: Map Levels
Map levels make your maps easier to view. Your map can have thousands of nodes, so LANsurveyor automatically groups map objects into three levels:
- Level 1 includes network segments and routers (SNMP support is required to identify routers)
- Level 2 includes network segments, routers and switches (SNMP support is required to identify switches)
- Level 3 includes network segments, routers, switches, and all other end nodes
To change your default map view, select Options from the Tools menu then click on the Levels tab.
Click on one of the map level icons to change your map level. Click on the Level 1 icon to view just your routers and network segments.
Click on the Level 2 icon to view Level 1 plus your switches.
Click on the Level 3 icon to display all map nodes.
To limit the nodes displayed in Level 3 to certain classes of objects (e.g., just nodes that responded to SNMP queries), use Level 3 object filtering in the Options dialog.
Step 3 of 3: Zoom from Overview
Open the Map Overview by clicking on the Map Overview icon on the toolbar or selecting Overview from the Window menu.
To adjust the zoom level from the overview window, resize the hashed-line rectangle by clicking and dragging one of the four corners. You can also scroll the map by dragging the map window rectangle over the area you would like to view in the Map Window.
