Roles with the following permissions can access Topology:
User default - Can access the Topology section.
Admin default - Can access and configure the Topology graph via the Topology UI API.
To learn more about how BigPanda's permissions work, see the RBAC - Role Based Access Control guide.
BigPanda can connect to external topology sources via API or out-of-the-box integrations. These sources are used to automatically enrich incoming alerts in real-time. This drives several use cases:
- Impact Assessment - Assess which business services and applications are impacted by low-level infrastructure issues.
- Root Cause Analysis - Identify the common denominator of symptoms, ie: a physical server issue resulting in tens of VM issues, or a failed switch resulting in tens of device connectivity issues.
- Incident Filtering & Routing - Easily isolate incidents based on their location in the infrastructure topology.
- Correlation - Correlate events based on dependencies between networks, servers, clouds and applications.
The Real-Time Topology Mesh feature is comprised of the following components:
BigPanda's out-of-the-box integrations allow users to connect BigPanda to existing topology sources. To peruse the integrations available for this feature, see the Topology Integrations guide.
Below is an example of a Real-Time Topology Mesh stitched together from multiple topology sources:
BigPanda's API for Mapping Enrichments digests topology and other enrichment information in real-time and at scale.
The Topology section in the incident details pane displays a graph of the links between an incident’s alert tags.
