Automatically using LLDP
If the switches and servers on your network infrastructure support SNMP and LLDP, Quantellium automatically adds connections between devices on the map. Click here for more information about LLDP.
When you add a new object to a map, the coordinates of the clicked position on the map become the coordinates of the new object. The device is pinned to that position on the map. Devices are also pinned 1) when they are moved and 2) when a connection from the device is added to a second one.
Normally, objects on a web page are automatically rendered when the size of web pages is adjusted. Pinned devices can not be rendered dynamically. All devices that do not have a connection to another device can be unpinned by right-clicking on a blank spot of the canvas and selecting Map actions | Unpin all.
