Which routers will be displayed on the Hierarchy map? #
All online routers that have at least one online parent or child relationship will appear on the map.
Which routers will be selected for the auto-build? #
All routers that are online and do not currently have a parent already set in Hierarchy view. They will appear in the Unsorted Rouers side panel on the Hierarchy view page.
How are router parents determined? #
Each router selected for the auto-build is sent the request:
/ip route print where dst-address=”0.0.0.0/0” active=yes
If a gateway route is found, the mac address for the gateway address is located with the request:
/ip arp print
MAC addresses have their last three digits compared to the list of routers for your company, which if found will create a parent/child relationship.
If a MAC address is not found, or a gateway address is not located, then the router will be assumed to be a root router.
How can I enter in topology manually? #
On the Hierarchy view page, you can manually click and drag routers to form parent and child relationships or move routers to the root directory.
Can I reset my hierarchy to start fresh? #
Yes, the Reset button under Auto-Build will remove all parent and child relationship data.
