Cloud VectorΒΆ


The DevOps Portal has been deprecated in the Q4`18 MCP release tagged with the 2019.2.0 Build ID.

The Cloud Vector dashboard uses a node graph to represent a cloud environment in a form of a cloud map. The entities that build the map include availability zones (AZs), hosts, VMs, and services. Each host represents a compute node in a particular AZ with all VMs and services running on it. Thereby, a cloud map enables you to easily identify the number of nodes running in your cloud environment.

The screen capture below is an example of a cloud map created by Cloud Vector.



The Cloud Vector dashboard depends on the following services:

  • DevOps Portal web UI
  • Cloud Intelligence service

To use the Cloud Vector dashboard:

  1. Log in to the DevOps Portal.

  2. Navigate to the Cloud Vector dashboard.

  3. Proceed with the following available actions as required:

    • Collapse child elements:


      Hosts with more than 50 child VMs are collapsed by default.


      The size of a host circle depends on the number of its child elements. The more VMs a host owns, the bigger it is.

      • Double-click on an AZ or a host to collapse its child elements. If a host is collapsed, the number of its VMs is displayed. Services are not collapsed when you collapse a host.
      • Use the slider to collapse the nodes which VMs count matches the specified conditions.
    • Expand child elements:

      • Double-click on a collapsed element to expand its child elements.
      • Click Expand all to expand all collapsed elements.
    • Drag elements on the canvas:

      • Drag a particular element to move it and all connected elements.
      • Drag the canvas background to change the position of all elements.
      • Click Reset zomming to reset canvas shifts.
    • Scale elements on the canvas:


      Red borders appear if elements are extended beyond the canvas boundaries.

      • Click on the canvas and scroll up or down to zoom in or out.
      • Click Reset zomming to reset scaling.
    • Show and hide node labels:

      • Use toggles to show or hide labels of particular entities.
      • Hover over a particular element to view its label.
