Conventional network documentation is helpful for understanding neighbor relationships and logical connectivity but it doesn’t provide much insight into network design. To understand configuration such as routing, spanning-tree, and multicasting, the CLI used to be the only way.

NetBrain’s advanced dynamic diagrams and Design Reader engine provide a visual way to quickly understand the underlying network design.

Map the Network

The best tool for understanding network design is a network diagram. For many organizations, creating and maintaining manual documentation is too expensive. NetBrain’s dynamic diagrams are created instantly. An overview map shows the relationship between separate sites, while layer-3 and layer-2 maps let you see which devices belong to each site.

Annotate the Map with Design Details

Typical network diagrams are labeled with IP addresses, subnet masks, interfaces and hostnames. NetBrain’s dynamic diagrams include configuration details like multicasting, routing, and access-lists. They can also be annotated with color-coded links to highlight LAN segments, spanning-tree blocked ports and more.

Drill-Down with ‘Design Reader’

Design analysis usually means logging into devices one at a time and executing a series of show-commands. Interface configuration, spanning-tree status, QoS policies etc. typically aren’t something you can just glance. NetBrain’s Design Reader engine eliminates the need to sift through show-command output by providing hundreds of design templates that collect the relevant device data and display it in an abbreviated format.
