Try the different functions on the Arrange menu until you are satisfied with the topology.

If you have a large set of devices or want to represent a topology specific to your network, you can also use the graphics tools to create custom map views.

For example, to clean-up a map, after completing discovery, you can try the following display options:

  1. Select the device group, and click the Map View tab.
  2. Right-click in the Map View and select Display > Clip Device Names. This removes the domain part of the device name and shows only the host name.
  3. Select all devices in the view by clicking and dragging a selection box around all devices. Then, from the Arrange menu, select Distribute > Device Icons in Rows.
