When you hover over a component, the component context menu is displayed. This gives you information about the component, this includes:
Component context menu
Actions can be used to expand the topology selection to show all dependencies for the selected component. Other actions may be available for specific components, such as component actions that are installed as part of a StackPack.
A list of the available actions is included in the right panel Selection details tab when you select a component to show its detailed information and also in the component context menu, which is displayed when you hover over a component.
Shortcuts give you direct access to detailed information about the specific component:
- Show properties - Opens the properties popup for the component. This is the same as clicking SHOW ALL PROPERTIES in the right panel Selection details tab when detailed information about a component is displayed.
- Investigate in subview - Opens a subview containing only this component. The subview allows you to investigate a single component in all perspectives without needing to adjust the view filters. This is the same as clicking INVESTIGATE IN SUBVIEW in the right panel Selection details tab when detailed information about a component is displayed.
Relations show how components in the topology are connected together. They are represented by a dashed or solid line and have an arrowhead showing the direction of dependency between the components they link. Health state will propagate from one component to the next, from dependencies to dependent components. Relations that have one or more health checks configured will report a calculated health state.
Select a relation to open detailed information about it in the right panel Selection details tab.
