Visualizing Network Topology

Tanel Tomson
The number of computers and network switches that connect the computers to a local area network can grow large. Maintaining an overview of the topology of those networks can get cumbersome to network administrators. The aim of this thesis is to write a standalone tool that is simple to use and produces a graphical overview of the topology of a local area network for network administrators to use. As a result a program was written. The program asks configured network devices for information about their neighbours using the SNMP protocool and proceeds to create a website displaying the network topology as a graph. The installation and running of the program is simple, there is no need to install a large network monitoring system. Finished application was tested in the local area network of Cybernetica AS.
