CDP - LLDP - Discovery and visualization

SNMP::Info can gives us the neighbourhood of CDP/LLDP hosts.

This kind of discovery should be real faster than nmap to track existing hosts.

 

Then, when could populate a field called "neighbours" in the hosts. The field would not be used the reachability function, but only in the maps. Using only parent-child relationship is not enough to draw a map of the network.

 

Using the js thejit toolkit, already used in the "dependancy" widget, we could in a way replace nagvis. Which by the way still does not support other relationship than parent-child.

 

Shinken should support circular relations, just for visualization.
