Exporting XLS format documents.

I will contribute animation to which system information in MGS is output by the XLS format this time. I will introduce it again because I think that it was not possible to introduce it though this function was already a function built in.
The output by the XLS format will generate the XLS file of project information and each individual node. As for each sheet, the content of the directory of one of the parameter sheet display is described.

Simple Ping monitoring function.

I will introduce it because I built in a simple Ping monitoring function. The Ping monitoring of the selection of the object node observed from the PS(Ping Survey) button, and the input of the Ping time-out (millisecond) and monitoring interval (minite) pushing the beginning button will begin. The Ping monitoring might loop Thread of the lowest priority and be not accurate because it executes it according to the case the monitoring interval. It reflects it in the menu, and I will execute Ping to all IP ports in the node when check (Box) on each port is selected and reflect the result in the map. When IP Reachable was able to be confirmed, Ping to other IP ports is not executed at non-selection. Moreover, the IP Reachability result of each port is not displayed in the map.
It is likely to fail in Ping when it is too short and set the Ping time-out according to the environment, please though it is assumed 3000 by default. Please comment by all means if there is still a demand because it is a first edition function.

Importing config function by Telnet access

The config by the Telnet access takes and will contribute the animation of the function. It becomes an operation to take the network using catalyst3550 arranged in home lab, catalyst2940, and cisco1720 into MGS by way of the Telnet access.

Ping and Traceroute function

It introduces the Ping function and the trace route function. Not only the hop node at three layer levels but also layers display the route of two or less in the trace route function. Please note the thing that is not the one that the real machine access and depends in the one calculated based on information in MGS about these two functions.

Mask display of value of parameter sheet

As for the parameter sheet, it is possible to select the displayed item of a whole project and each individual node. The item is not displayed here though it is a function to convert into the display that cannot be read that the input item is called *** by the mask display. I think these functions and functions that can be used with various cases in the security function by the password giving.

VLAN filtering function

The VLAN filtering function is a function that specified VLAN is made non-display and only target VLAN can be displayed. It is possible to confirm non-display the multi layer inside the campus and L2 inside the campus. Non-display on the parameter sheet will correspond by non-display of selection of the parameter sheet function because it is non-display function to drawing.

Zoom function

The zoom in and the zoom out function are provided inside the campus each. It is possible to do zoom in and zoom out by moving the mouse on the campus and rotating the scroll wheel. The thing that selects the display magnification menu from the display menu and makes to a fixed magnification is possible.

Icon change (L1 - L4_7 campus)

There are an icon etc. for which the icon is used by the icon used on the icon and the rack campus being used on the L1-L4_7 campus for the rack and the detailed screen display menu of each node. The icon change used L1-L4_7 inside the campus of the first description is contributed this time.

Equipped with node to rack

The thing added by right-clicking the rack inside the campus and selecting the node addition menu is possible equipped with the node to the rack. As for the node image on the rack, the thing freely defined by the icon change menu is possible.

Display of building sheet

The building sheet is a sheet where information that the building object maintains as well as the parameter sheet of the node is displayed. The building sheet includes information on the building, the floor, and the rack. An arbitrary building is selected, and the thing displayed by executing the building sheet display menu from right-clicking is possible.

Displaying the rack the rack inside the campus becomes possible when the rack is added, and selected, and it is possible to install the node in the rack.

Display of inventory dialog

Because capture did not end, the display of the inventory dialog is contributed with the building and the floor though it thought the following to be a rack campus by coming. The inventory dialog becomes a display of the list of node information added on the network diagram campus. It is possible to select the parameter sheet item besides regulated lists of the node list, the Internet Protocol address list, the VLAN list, and the ACL list, etc. and for an original table to make it. So that this: parameter sheet originally has function of making to division in case of the purpose is to avoid complication, and thing that displays two or more nodes at the top and bottom and edits it is possible though editing work in table cannot be done.

Addition of floor

It is possible to add the floor to the building of the last contribution. The tab of each floor is generated the floor inside the campus and the floor campus where the rack etc. are arranged is prepared. Can the building of the object be double-clicked on the building campus or the movement to the floor be moved the floor inside the campus the purpose with the object building selected by the thing in the toolbar for floor campus (F) to click on a button.

Addition of building

The campus to arrange the building, the floor, and the rack besides the campus where the network diagram is made in MGS is prepared. It moves the building inside the campus to arrange the building, drag & drop is done from the component box as well as the network node, it adds or the thing added by right-clicking on the building campus and selecting the building addition menu is possible.
