Best practice

OSPFviz works best if


For best results, run OSPFviz in two steps:
  1. The first step explores the network starting from device
    perl ospfviz.pl -s -w my_network.xml -d 0,1,2

  2. The second run creates the network map:
    perl ospfviz.pl -f hypergraph -r my_network.xml -d 0,1,2
If the topology map doesn't look like you have expected, change the OSPFviz configuration file and redo step 2. After each run you have the html files index.html, device.html, analyse.html and area.html. The required GIF images are in the images directory of the OSPFviz tarball. Just open index.html in your favorite web browser.
