The Navigator portlet on the Summary tab gives you a summarized result of the mapping process that has been performed on the selected virtual machine.

The following table lists and describes the fields in the Navigator portlet.

Navigator Portlet

Field

Value

Discovery Status

Displays the discovery status of the virtual machine.

Normal: Indicates absence of any error. For more information, see Mapping Services.

Access failed: Indicates that the mapping process failed on the selected virtual machine and displays an error message describing the reason for failure.

The field displays a green icon for a Normal status and a gray icon for a Access failed status.

Successful Discovery

Displays the time elapsed since the last successful discovery of the virtual machine.

Application services

Displays a comma-separated list of services installed and running on the selected virtual machine.

In case of multiple services with the same version or multiple services without any version, the service name is displayed once with number of instances in parentheses.

Dependencies

Displays the total number of dependencies including incoming and outgoing dependencies.

Click Dependencies to view the number of incoming and outgoing dependencies.

Incoming

When a virtual machine, or a service running on it, requires information from a service running on the selected virtual machine, a dependency exists between the two virtual machines. This dependency is known as an incoming dependency.

For example, if the selected virtual machine serves another virtual machine it is an incoming dependency.

Outgoing

When the selected virtual machine, or a service running on it, requires information from a service running on another virtual machine, a dependency exists between the two virtual machines. This dependency is known as an outgoing dependency.

For example, if the selected virtual machine is served by another virtual machine it is an outgoing dependency.

To view the dependency map of the selected virtual machine, click Show dependencies at the bottom of the Navigator portlet or click the Application Dependencies tab under Manage tab from the toolbar.
