MonALISA GUI for supporting Agents that monitor and control optical switches

In order to efficiently make use of the dedicated modules and agents used to monitor and control Optical Switches the MonALISA Client provides an specialized panel. This permits the interraction between users and the monitored Optical Switches. It offers a number of features to the end user such as complete perspective over the topology of the monitored optical networks or the possibility to monitor the state of the Optical Swiches or the possibility to dynamically create new optical paths.

The main panel is shown in the picture below. The panel shows the current topology of the monitored Optical Switches with links between them and their current states. The switches are represented in an intuitive way. Each router shows the current state of the internal ports, each state having a different color. In the panel are also represented a number of other devices (the blue ovals) which are connected by optical links to the switches. Between the switches and the links connecting them are represented, again with different colors representing the different current states. In order to see the mapping between colors and states the panels offers a legend dialog.

The Optical Switches and the links connecting them are also visibile on the 3D Map panel.

When hovering over one of the Optical Switches the panel shows in more detail the current available ports for that particular switch together with the correspoding states.

OS Panel

For the optical paths created from this panel (represented in green color) you can see through which devices and ports one particular path is crossing (from end to end) and the components involved in that path are highlited.

OS Panel

From this panel one can even create new optical paths or delete existing ones. But that only if provided the necessary rights.

OS Panel

For each Optical Switch their is a corresponding informations panel showing different usefull information such as the current optical power for every component port of the current cross connections between input and output ports.

OS Panel

As already mentioned the panel can help in removing optical paths altogether. If unsure about the paths current selected for removal it even shows detailed information that can be used to decide whether that path is really the one searched for.
