Defining a network environment

One of the first things you do after connecting an Exinda to your network, is define how the Exinda sees your network and its components.

As an analogy, imagine walking around your office or data center and placing sticky notes on all the servers, cables and racks to identify them and note what they do. That's essentially what you do when you define objects in Exinda.

There are a variety of object types available, representing almost every physical, virtual and logical network component in your environment.
