At the core of Hyperglance is a model that consists of Nodes, Links and Endpoints:



Left-clicking on any entity will bring up the entity dashboard.



Nodes represent devices and other central concepts. They include things like Instances/VMs, Storage, Load balancers, etc.


Links represent connections and associations between nodes. Some links are purely logical and may not have much information of their own, but they serve to produce a meaningful 3D view. Other links correspond to an underlying concept, such as a VPC Peering Connection, and they can have interesting attributes of their own. Read more about the various types of links in Hyperglance.


Endpoints are available on some nodes such as Instances and represent, for example, a Network-Interface.

Often endpoints are not actually shown on the 3D map in which case they are available via the ENDPOINTS tab of the node itself:

In fact Endpoints are will be seen on the 3D map in the circumstance where we are able to render an individual, non-aggregated link that connects to the endpoint; if the link is aggregated (which is often the case) then Hyperglance will not render the endpoint.
