Introduction
What Is in This Chapter
This chapter introduces the SPECTRUM management module for SynOptics
28000 Series Switches. It describes the following:
• SynOptics 28000 Series Switches
• SPECTRUM Support
- Accessing SPECTRUM Views from the Device Icon
- Accessing Device-Specific Subviews
SynOptics 28000 Series Switches
The model type name refers to the models used to specify attributes, actions,
and associations for the device in SPECTRUM. The model type name for
SynOptics 28000 series switches is SwSyn28xxx.
SwSyn281xx
SynOptics 28000 Switches are managed through the Simple Network

SPECTRUM Support
A SPECTRUM management module is a software emulation of a physical
device or application. It uses icons to represent these devices/applications in
the user interface. The icons provide status “at a glance” through the use of a
color code, and access to in-depth information on the device’s configuration
and operating activity.
Refer to the and administration documentation for modeling instructions.
Accessing SPECTRUM Views from the Device Icon
The Device icon provides access to SPECTRUM views, which display devicespecific information. Access SPECTRUM views using double-click zones
(Figure 1-1) and Icon Subviews menus (Figure 1-2).
To access the Icon Subviews menu as shown in Figure 1-2, do the following:
1. Highlight the icon.
2. From the View menu, select Icon Subviews or click the applicable mouse
button (middle or right). Refer to the operation documentation for
information on configuring your mouse.

Device View
What Is in This Chapter
This chapter describes the following Device views available for the SynOptics
28000 series switches.
• Logical Device View
- Switch Community View
• Physical Device View
SPECTRUM provides both static physical and dynamic logical
representations of the switch configuration. With the dynamic logical
representation, if the configuration changes, you see the corresponding
change within the view after the model’s next polling cycle.
See Chapter 1, Introduction, for information on Accessing SPECTRUM Views
from the Device Icon and Accessing Device-Specific Subviews.
Logical Device View
This view displays a logical representation of the switch module that provides
information about the switch instead of presenting a physical image.
As Figure 2-1 shows, the Logical Module icon representing the switch contains
labels that apply to the switch itself, as well as icons representing its
individual ports.

Switch Community View
Figure 2-3 shows an example of the Switch Community view. Access the
Switch Community view from the double-click zone shown in Figure 2-1. This
view displays the connections between domains and ports within a switch
community. All the switches connected together are called a “community.” At
the top of this view is a board that represents the Switch Community with
“ports” that represent the domains (or VLANs ). Below this are the Logical
Module icons representing each of the switches in the community that are
modeled in SPECTRUM. The Master is the first switch. If the Master is not
modeled, then this view will only show the domains that the switch is in and
the Logical Module icon for the switch from which the view was accessed. The
view will update if a switch or VLAN is added or removed from the
community.
Clicking a port number highlights the domain number of the domain icon
containing that port. Clicking the domain number on a domain icon highlights
the port number of all the ports in the domain. Clicking the domain number
again unhighlights all the ports and the domain icon.
NOTE
The trunk port is not part of the domain: it connects the switches within the
LAN. Trunk port icons look the same as port icons in the Switch Community
View, except a trunk port icon has a violet background behind its number.
In addition to the capabilities described above, the port and module icons
provide the same information described under Logical Module Icon.

This chapter describes the Device Topology view for SPECTRUM models of
SynOptics 28000 switches. This chapter also describes the views and
functions available from the Device Topology view. The Device Topology
(DevTop) view represents a device in terms of its ports and port connections.
Device Topology View
The Device Topology view allows you to connect other devices to SynOptics
switch ports. It also allows you to view information pertaining to these ports
and their connections. Figure 5-1 provides an example of the DevTop view for

Off-Page Reference Panel
The Off-Page Reference panel in the top-left section of the DevTop view
displays icons representing network devices that SPECTRUM “knows” are
connected to the SynOptics switch, but for which a specific port connection has
not been determined. These triangular-shaped icons must be connected to a
port for SPECTRUM to correctly monitor and manage the connected device.
To connect an Off-Page Reference icon to a port, follow these steps:
1. Select Edit from the File menu.
2. Click on the Off-Page Reference icon.
3. Drag the Off-Page Reference icon onto a port in the Port Connections
panel at the bottom of the DevTop view (the triangular-shaped device icon
turns into a small rectangular icon).
4. Select Save & Close from the File menu.
As soon as this port connection process is completed, you can manage and
monitor information from devices connected to the SynOptics Switch device.
Refer to the operation and administration documentation for more
information.

The Simplified Device View panel, in the top center of the DevTop view,

Port Connections Panel
Port Connections Panel
The Port Connections panel, located at the bottom of the DevTop view,
represents the ports contained in the SynOptics switch device. You can move
any device model icons that appear in the Off-Page Reference panel to the
Port Connections panel and connect them to an appropriate port. You can also
create new device model icons with the New Model option from the Edit
menu, and subsequently connect them to the proper port.
The device-to-port connection process is controlled by the Connects_to relation
rule. SPECTRUM checks these relation rules to verify that the connection can
be made. Once you make a connection between a device and the port, an
association forms between the port and the connected device via the
Connects_to relation. SPECTRUM also forms a Collects relation between the
newly connected device model, its connected port, and the SynOptics switch
device.
The Port icons provide performance and status information for each port on
the device. The views available from the Port icons are the same views
available from the Port icons described in Chapter 2, Device View.

• Syn28xEnSwchApp
Common Applications
This device supports the following common applications, which are described
in the SPECTRUM Application View Reference:
• MIB-II (SNMP2_Agent)
- IP (IP2_App)
- System (System2_App)
- UDP (UDP2_App)

Application View
Application View
The Application view allows you to access increasingly detailed views of
network information for the applications supported by this device. You can
view information on any application supported by the SynOptics Switch. Each
application appears as an icon in the Application view. Access applicationspecific Model Information views, Performance views, and Detail views from
these icons. Depending on the specific application, various additional views
are also available and are discussed in this section.
Two special options are available for the Application view through the Edit
menu. These menu-choice options interact with the device modeled and are as
follows:
Poll Time
Opens a dialog box that allows entry of the time interval, in seconds, when the
SpectroSERVER reads all the attributes of the device that are marked as
POLLED.
Reconfigure
Polls the device to discover the applications supported by the firmware and
reconfigures the Application view accordingly. Use this option to recover
destroyed application icons.
Application View Modes
Depending on the display mode you choose, the Application view either lists
the supported common and device-specific applications by name or shows
them as icons.
Figure 6-1 shows an example of an Application view in the Icon mode.
Figure 6-2 shows an example of an Application view in the List mode.
To change the display mode, from the View menu select Mode -> List or Icon.
