Network map

Ivanti® Endpoint Manager powered by Landesk 2018.1 introduces a new network map display. It's on a new tab beside the traditional network view.

The network map isn't populated by default. You'll need to configure a few things first.

The network map uses data from self-electing subnet services. The elected device on each subnet can do a traceroute to the route target you specify. By default this target is the core server, but you may want to use a target on the edge of your network, like a gateway, so the map is oriented around that. It's also possible to create and deploy different client connectivity agent settings that each point to a different route target. If you do this, in the network map you can select which target route map you want to view in the Target drop-down list.

The console coalesces the traceroute data and draws a map of all subnets and intermediate nodes. Each node on the map's top level is a subnet or switch. If there are devices with agents behind those nodes, the node is represented as a color-coded pie chart. The pie chart shows the percentages of different device types behind that node, such as Windows, macOS, and so on. The connection line color indicates the ping response time.

On the network map, you can:

  • Hover over a pie chart slice to see the details for that slice.
  • Double-click a chart to see the devices on that subnet, along with color-coded icons indicating the device type.
  • Right-click supported devices to see management options, such as inventory, remote control, and diagnostics.

The network map uses icons to represent discovered devices:

The top icon is for switches. The bottom-row icons represent the following devices:

  • Apple macOS
  • Neither macOS or Windows
  • Router
  • Gateway
  • Windows
