The Traceroute dashboard displays information about the traceroute paths from the Entuity server to the selected device or VM platform. The Traceroute dashboard is only applicable to devices and VM platforms. It is not applicable to any other managed object (e.g. Views, services, components etc).
The Traceroute dashboard contains one dashlet, in the case of both devices and VM platforms:
- Traceroute - this is a Traceroute dashlet.
Every 10 minutes, ENA applicationMonitor runs traceroute to create new traceroute paths of the network, and updates its list of discovered IP addresses. Every 2 minutes it pings IP addresses on that list, which updates the Traceroute dashlet. The Traceroute dashlet displays the traceroute path from the Entuity server to the selected device.
