About Yamaha LAN Monitor
About Yamaha LAN Monitor
Yamaha LAN Monitor enables you to use your PC to monitor the information of Yamaha switches and connected
devices.
The main functions are as follows.
• LAN map function (page 7) detects the network topology and visualize the entire network.
• The port status and bandwidth usage of Yamaha switches can be viewed.
• The snapshot function (page 14) is useful for automatically testing network abnormalities or troubleshooting.
• You can assign identification labels to each device.
Terminology
L2MS (Layer 2 Management Service)
A system for managing Yamaha network devices at the layer 2 level
Controller
The device that is assigned as the controller of L2MS (Yamaha LAN
Monitor, Yamaha router)
Slave
Yamaha switch
Equipment
Computer, etc.
Snapshot
The state of connected devices that is saved inside Yamaha LAN Monitor
Snapshot file
A file that contains a snapshot
Notes regarding equipment detection
• Switches made by another manufacturer and slaves and equipment that are subordinate to a router made by
another manufacturer cannot be shown correctly.
• Equipment that is connected to a switch made by another manufacturer is shown as equipment connected to the
immediately-previous slave device. However, depending on the structure of the network, it might not be possible
to show them.
• Do not connect any other L2MS controllers to the same network that Yamaha LAN Monitor is connected to.

Starting/Exiting Yamaha LAN Monitor
How to start
Use any of the following methods to start Yamaha LAN Monitor.
Yamaha LAN Monitor starts differently depending on whether you directly access Yamaha LAN Monitor or access a
snapshot file (nms file) saved on the PC.
•
Start Yamaha LAN Monitor from the Start menu or from a shortcut.
Yamaha LAN Monitor loads a snapshot file that is currently held in it. The “Tree” view shows a comparison
between the current network state and the snapshot. If no snapshot file is held, the “Tree” view shows only the
current network state.
•
Double-click a snapshot file (nms file) saved on the PC to start Yamaha LAN Monitor.
Yamaha LAN Monitor loads the snapshot file you double-clicked. The “Tree” view shows a comparison
between the current network state and the snapshot.
NOTE
Snapshot is a function that saves the network connection state inside Yamaha LAN Monitor. A snapshot file is a file with the
