I am building an integrated network operations portal that ties together information from a number of resources. One thing I would like to understand is the topology of the network, and I am trying to use MTR to do so. Unfortunately I don't think it is able to indeitfy the IP address of the Switches, Firewall, or Virtual (vSphere) switches.
I know there are a couple of hops to get to that end point. And this output is useful, as I would be able to get understand the numbner of jumps between endpoints and therefore with enough data I will be able co confirm what is on the same sengment (logical or virtual), however I want to be able to understand how those segments fit together.
$ mtr --show-ips --report-wide 10.8.100.12 Start: Sat Feb 27 12:00:05 2016 HOST: tbrown Loss% Snt Last Avg Best Wrst StDev 1.|-- ??? 100.0 10 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 2.|-- ??? 100.0 10 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 3.|-- drblah02.xyz.com (10.8.100.12) 0.0% 10 76.2 76.1 73.7 80.7 2.3
Do these devices need to be enabled to provide this information somehow?
