    The AppDynamics Network Dashboard displays the network-layer view of a monitored application. Based on the runtime state of the application, AppDynamics automatically fetches the faults and connection issues and displays them in the network dashboard as shown in the following figure.

    Faults are displayed at the tier level. The number of faults displayed indicates an aggregate of faults occurring at all EPGs within the tier. You can view the number of faults at a given point of time in the Network Dashboard.

    A connection is the set of all traffic for an application that has the same Source IP, Destination IP, Destination Port, and Protocol.  AppDynamics detects if there is an issue in the traffic flow and indicates the connection issue on the network dashboard.

    You can initiate a diagnosis to determine the exact location of the connection issue within the network by cross-launching the connection in Cisco APIC controller.

    1. On the Network flow Map, click on the affected connection.
    2. On the popup window, click the Connections tab.
    3. Select the connection you want to troubleshoot.
    4. Right-click on the selection and choose Troubleshoot (Cisco APIC).
