Adjusting the Topology Layout

Adjusting the Topology Layout

After devices are connected, the devices and subnets are automatically displayed in the physical topology. To authentically represent the actual network structure, you need to adjust these topology objects based on their real network locations.


  • Resources have been connected to eSight.
  • You have the operation rights for topology modification.
  • The network topology has been planned.


The eSight does not provide any messages using the topology background. Do not believe any operation instructions in the topology background if any to ensure system security.


  1. Choose Topology > Topology Management from the main menu.
  2. Arrange the topology objects according to the network design diagram. After the adjustment is complete, click to save the new locations.

    Table 7-1 Arranging topology objects



    Creating a subnet

    When resources are connected to eSight, eSight automatically creates subnets based on the subnet rules planned during resource access in the topology.

    If the planned subnet rules do not meet requirements, you can manually create subnets in the topology view.

    • The number of subnet layers should not exceed 10. Otherwise, network performance will deteriorate.
    • It is recommended that a subnet contain a maximum of 500 NEs.
    1. Click on the toolbar and choose .
    2. Select NEs that you want to add to a subnet and click . Double-click the subnet and click to paste the NEs to it.
    3. After all desired NEs are added to the subnet, drag them to adjust their locations within the subnet.

    Adjusting the locations of NEs and subnets

    • Drag objects if you only need to adjust them within the same subnet.
    • To move an object to or out of a subnet, use and . Before pasting objects to another subnet, double-click the subnet to open it.

    Identifying topology object scopes using boxes

    Identify topology object scopes using boxes with different shapes and colors to clearly show the network structure. For example, you can use this method to distinguish objects between different campuses.
    1. Click on the toolbar.
    2. Drag a shape to the topology view and set its attributes.
    3. Drag topology objects to the shape. Adjust the layer relationship between the shape and topology objects using the shortcut menu as required.

    Do not enter personal data or sensitive information, including accounts, passwords, phone numbers, and emails. The topology objects with annotations are visible to all users. Protect private information.


    You can map NEs to subnets. NEs exist in subnets as images, but are not involved in status and alarm statistics collection of the subnets. The operations on the mirrored NEs are automatically synchronized to the source NEs. Right-click the target NE and choose Map to Subnet from the shortcut menu.
