Hyperglance can look at your tags and find any dependencies relating to the tagged nodes to create a ‘Dependency View’.
For example, if an EC2 Instance is appropriately tagged Hyperglance also shows the Network entities such as route-tables, Gateways, Peering connections that the EC2-Instance could use to communicate. When multiple nodes are tagged with the same label Hyperglance looks for the connections between them as well. As more nodes are tagged ‘Dependency Views’ are built up showing only the relevant infrastructure including any Alarms that could have a direct effect on the dependency view.
Watch the short tutorial:
There are two ways to select a Dependency view. From the menu at the top right of the page or in the Attributes tab of any Node or Group that is part of a valid Dependency view. Multiple views can be selected at once.
Selecting one of the tags will activate the Dependency view, indicated by the blue bar along the bottom of the screen:
Multiple tags can be added to the view. The blue bar along the bottom of the screen shows you which tags are presently being active. These Active Tag pills have two actions within them, the 'X' deactivates the particular view and the 'link' takes you to the Dependency view dashboard.
To exit the view and return to the overall topology just click the Exit button.
