Changing Node States



Cisco MGM MapViewer displays information about Cisco MGX 8000 Series CVGs, MGX 8000 Series components, and media gateway controllers (MGCs).

Each object shown in the right window provides graphical cues about the network element that it represents. The information can be structural (for example, a network element name), or it can be state and event information (for example, "out of service"). If an object becomes unreachable, it is represented by a bomb icon.

Figure 5-1 shows an example of a typical MapViewer display.
