You can view a second level of application dependencies that are dependent on or serve a specific virtual machine.

Beneath each virtual machine in a map, other than the selected virtual machine, are two buttons, represented by Second Level Dependencies, that you can use to view second-level application dependencies. Clicking the button on the left shows incoming application dependencies. Clicking the button on the right shows outgoing application dependencies. The total number of dependencies is displayed on the button. If there are no dependencies to display, the button is disabled and a tool tip shows a No more dependencies to display message. If you click one of these buttons, it displays the next level of application dependencies that is dependent or serves the virtual machine and the button is grayed out.

The first level application dependency is shown in dark blue color and the second-level application dependencies are shown in dark green color.

You can remove the newly discovered virtual machines and its connections that have been discovered by this functionality by clicking the FXG icon on the upper right corner of the virtual machine.

If you remove a second-level dependent virtual machine, the count on the button of the original virtual machine is increased by one. You can retrieve all the second-level dependent virtual machines by clicking on the button of the original virtual machine again.

Note

If a virtual machine has more than 70 incoming or outgoing dependencies, the Second Level Dependencies is disabled and at the tool tip

Too many connections. Double-click the virtual machine to see its first level dependencies in table view
