Technology Tables

Overview

Tables enable analysis and correlation of network state information and parameters on the fly. Most of the tables display live snapshot data generated by graph algorithms without a preexisting cache. The first load of a large table usually takes longer than subsequent loads, however all tables were built to handle large capacities and complex queries, so the outcome is likely to be better than analyzing the output in external applications like Excel.

Network or Site view

Tables display data for the whole network by default. To only display data for a specific site, select "site" from the drop down menu on the top left.

Table filtering

Simple or advanced filters can be applied to each table. By default, filtering is available above each column, and accepted filtering values can be strings, numbers, IP addresses, networks, boolean values, or selectbox values.

RegEx can be used in a string filter by adding "=~" after the expression. An exact match of the value can be achieved by adding "=" before the expression

Fields containing IP Addresses can be filtered by entering the IP/prefix length in the CIDR notation. For example, 10.0.0.0/25 will find addresses between and including 10.0.0.128 and 10.0.0.255.

Advanced filters can be used to construct arbitrary complex expressions by combining nested filters and filter groups with any number of logical AND and OR operators between them. Advanced filters can be saved and recalled for each specific table. Filters are stored per table and are available to all users.

Table Exports

Table outputs can be exported into CSV format for further processing and the text can be opened by any spreadsheet processor. In some cases, Microsoft Excel and Google Spreadsheets convert strings from the CSV files into dates, but these can remain as exact values by renaming the content to “=”“string”“” to force the spreadsheet to retain the original content.

Note: It may take several seconds to prepare an export of large tables.

Tooltips

Each table contains built in help with the table description by clicking on the question mark . Hover the mouse over the column name for a description of column content.

Column visibility

Tables can be especially large to facilitate easier information correlation, however not all columns need to always be visible. To hide or show individual columns, click the  (toggle column visibility) button and select which the columns to be displayed. The first column can be set as “sticky” to facilitate analysis of tables with many columns. Row height can be adjusted by selecting small, medium or large font.

Persistent table view

To improve usability, each table remembers the settings and filtering for each user . To reset a table to it’s original state, click the  (restore table settings) button on the right hand side of the column header.
