Managing Platform Resources

Platform resources refer to the data models and data visualization for non-traditional devices that are discovered by the system via controllers. These built-in platform resources are intended to be modified by NetBrain engineers and do not allow customization unless you submit ticket.


The Technology tab is used to add new technology and define the method of building data structure for the technology in the system. The definition includes the methods of discovery, benchmark, building topology, and common API Interfaces to parse device data. The data and network model of the technology is defined through scripts in TechSpec.

Visual Space Template

Visual Space defines the properties in a data model that are used as nodes and ports, as well as the link (topology) for the nodes and ports. With these three basic objects, a network can be visualized on a map.

The Visual Space Template tab is used to define different visual spaces for a view of technology.
