The Connection Explorer (Explorer link, right side of Network Dashboard) shows all application flows and TCP Connections for an application in one table. The Connection Explorer is especially useful for large, complex applications. You can sort the table based on network KPIs to find flows with performance issues; then you can drill down and analyze the supporting connections in right-click Connection Dashboards.
The Connection Explorer shows information for:
Application Flows (Top-Level Tree Nodes)
The Explorer shows the following information for each flow. Click View Options to show/hide information as appropriate.
- Source tier
- Destination tier
If two flows connect via a Load Balancer (LB), the table shows the LB IP:port and the connection source:
Flow direction: LB --> Tier
Flow direction: Tier --> LB
If you want to see the relationships between application tiers and intermediate Load Balancers (LBs) more clearly, you can drag the Network Element heading so that the columns are ordered Source | Network Element | Destination.
- Number of Connections used by the flow
- TCP Loss (Mille)
TCP Connections (Second-Level Tree Nodes)
The Explorer shows the following information for each connection.
- Source IP, or Fully Qualified Domain Name (when available) for Load Balancers and TCP Endpoints
- Destination IP, or Fully Qualified Domain Name (when available) for Load Balancers and TCP Endpoints
