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. 1-hop isolate view; Show every entity one hop away from selected entity including itself

3. n-hop isolate view; Shows everything that is reachable from the selected entity


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 that appears to the top-left of the button:

The n-hop isolate view is similar to the 1-hop except that it will display all reachable entities from the initially selected entity.

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 entity along with everything that is reachable from it :
