BlueCat Integrity

The DNS Deployment Role Overlay tree map displays your network structure by configuration, blocks, and networks. Use the tree map to identify which blocks or networks are associated with which DNS deployment roles and the variations between parameters within DNS deployment roles that are assigned in relation to other blocks and networks.

The DNS Deployment Role Overlay provides a visual representation of the entire network in a tree-map orientation, providing instant overview of your DNS deployment roles for blocks and networks. You can also view detailed information for each block or network, including:
  • Description—name of a block or network.
  • Range—IP address range in CIDR notation.
  • Type—the type of the data object selected.
  • Allocation—percentage of IP addresses within the network or block that are assigned.
  • IP Count—number of IP addresses being used.
  • Capacity—total number of IP addresses within the block or network selected.
  • Depth—indicates selected block or network level within your configuration.
  • DNS Deployment Roles—DNS deployment roles assigned in the selected block or network.
  • DNS Deployment Options—DNS deployment options added in the selected block or network.
  • The density of the color for blocks and networks provides a qualitative view of your data. That means different colors represent the variation of DNS deployment roles assigned to a block or network.
  • Each cell represents a block or network.
