In a data center, the structure of the topology is best represented as a tiering in the classic Core, Distribution, Access model or the leaf spine model. Hyperglance has the ability to use different layouts, one of these is a layered or tiered model.
To achieve this the user needs to define the tiers using attributes.
Step 1: Identify an attribute that defines the tiering
Step 2: SSH to the Hyperglance VM and edit /opt/wildfly/standalone/deployments/hgs.ear/lib/common.jar/runtime.properties
Step 3: Add the attribute name to Network.layered.attributeName
Step 4: Define the levels using the attribute values. You can specify up to 10 tiers. Note: level 1 is the top
An Example of the runtime.properties files:
(Note: the word 'Network' that prefixes the property names refers to the datasource 'Network' as seen in the screenshot above. If you are configuring for a different datasource then use the appropriate prefix).
