Creating and Analyzing Network Diagrams
Using Network Diagrams in Network Availability Prediction
Network Availability Prediction recognizes the failure logic of the network from the network diagram entered by the user. The diagram represents how individual network element failures interact with other network element failures to prevent data flow between source and target nodes in the network.
A network diagram entered into Network Availability Prediction (you may create more than one network diagram in the same project) specifies the possible communication paths between different network elements. The paths between network elements, which are defined with connections, may be directional or non-directional. A directional connection indicates that data may flow in one direction only.
The network diagram will contain block symbols normally representing the network elements and the cables connecting the elements together.
