STP mapping plugin displays spanning tree, related to the particular node.
When plugin is installed, new tab
STP mapping is being added next to configuration backup tab, as well as new menu item appears.
STP data can be collected from nodes within scheduled task
stp. The task itself is built-in and doesn't depend on plugin. The plugin is responsible only for displaying STP tree, not for collecting data from nodes. Thus task
stp will remain in the system even if you uninstall the plugin, ensure to handle it in a proper way, removing from schedule if it's unnecessary.
In menu entry
Plugins -> Stp mapping you can obtain STP tree graphical representation, searching for a node by its
mac address or
ip address. Currently these are only criterias for lookup, so if you need spanning tree by node name, location or any other criteria - use Nodes interface
To collect necessary data with certain periodicity, make sure, that
stp scheduled task is set up properly. Related logs are located in
Logs -> Scheduler and can be filtered out by task name
stp. Please note, that STP realization differs from vendor to vendor, if your device data is not collected properly, contact us to find the solution.
