Being able to trace the logical and physical relationships in a system is very valuable.

Hyperglance has the ability to isolate parts of the topology to allow the user to focus on and discover these relationships.

1. Group isolate view; Shows one chosen group

2. One-hop isolate view; Show every node one hop away from selected node including itself

3. Cluster view;  Shows everything in the connected graph of the selected node


Once you apply an isolation view use the 'X' button to exit the isolated view and return to the full topology:

Or if you apply these views one after the other then you can jump back to the previous state using the back arrow:


Group Isolate View

Allows you to isolate on a specific group showing only the contents of that group.


First select a group that you wish to isolate, it is usually more meaningful to isolate on an expanded group when using this feature.

In the screenshot below we have selected the "us-east-1b" Availability Zone group:

Hover on the Isolate icon to open the menu then click the group Isolate group icon (left):








The 

OncOnce activated we see that all the other topology is hidden except for the selected group and its contents:



Use the X button to exit the isolated view and return to the full topology:



1-hop Isolate View

Allows you to isolate a selected node along with its immediate (1-hop) neighbour nodes.


First, select an entity that you wish to isolate from. Here we have selected an EC2 Instance node:



Hover on the Isolate icon to open the menu then click the One-Hop Isolate icon (middle):


This will isolate the selected node along with its immediate (1-hop) neighbours:


Use the X button to exit the isolated view and return to the full topology:



Multi-Hop Isolate View

The multi-hop isolate view is similar to the 1-hop except that it will display all reachable nodes from the initially selected node.

First, select an entity that you wish to isolate from:


Hover on the Isolate icon to open the menu then click the Multi-Hop Isolate icon (right):


This will isolate the selected node along with everything that is reachable from it :


Use the X button to exit the isolated view and return to the full topology:
