connections between devices are handled by discovery scripts, we don't do this by hand

so if i have 30 switches and over 200 servers, Ralph should be able to determine what is connected to what on it's own?

if you tune the lldp plugin by yourself - maybe

is there no way to add this information manually? it would be good help. We don't want to allow access to ralph persay to scan the entire range of subnets
testing ralph 2.x at this time

the answer is - no and yes ;-) we didn't expose in gui this functionality, but going to the admin site -> devices -> edit you will see
so you can manually set it if you want

yes, i can see that, but it only tells me what device it's connected to, not necessarily the port on the device

i'm looking for highlighted fields
so if i have a server with 4 network ports for example, i want to specify which ports on the switch they are connected to. Is this possible?
vi4m @vi4m is investigating

also, if i add an asset such as a router or switch, can i specify how many ports it has and what type of ports they are eg. 1gb, 10gb, fiber etc. So i can then connect my devices across to it?
✪ vi4m Marcin Kliks
@vi4m
Aug 12 2015 14:01
no, not implemented yet
we do this another way
ivan-sv
@ivan-sv
Aug 12 2015 14:07
which way?
also, i have deleted the default dc from devices and now my rack view is empty, even though i have data center configured, how do i get it back so i can see the rack view?

Nevermind, i figured out the part with the Rack view :) just had to create devices for data center and racks separately, which is kind of weird imo, since it should pull this information straight from data centers and racks section when they are created, since you already able to see them in DC view :)
