ConnectNow displays connections based on data polled for nodes with enabled L2 and L3 topology pollers, and for unidentified nodes.
An unidentified node is a node that was found on the network but which is not managed by Orion. These devices might be switches, hubs, routers, or other devices without names or addresses.
Unidentified nodes can be virtual, generated to signify an indirect connection in your map. For example, when a topology calculation cannot find any direct connections between two nodes, an unidentified node is generated between the two known nodes.
See Add objects on a map.
ConnectNow displays data stored in the TopologyConnections database table. By default, the data are re-calculated every 30 minutes. You can update the data manually.
The values in the TopologyConnections table will be re-calculated and your topologies will be updated.
