The network topology is the reconstructed visualization of the ingested collection files.


The Topology contains the reconstructed network. All assets discovered and identified by the analytics engine will be displayed within the topology, both graphically and within a table.

The Topology section contains 3 tabs and each tab can be modified to create a custom view:

  • Network
  • Inventory
  • External Hosts
