Environment Overview Page

This page displays a high-level overview of the inventory and network data that was imported into a Workload Placement project. From here, you can verify that data collection is comprehensive and complete, or if anything seems to be missing or inaccurate.

Use this page to confirm that the displayed number and type of conversations match expectations. Identify resource dependencies based on internal/internal network flow and internal/external network flow. Determine if the number of conversations match NetFlow output.

You can download reports that contain the information provided on the page. You can download individual reports or all reports at once.


You will need to rectify any significant data inconsistencies before a migration plan can be developed. If any of the information that was uploaded to Workload Placement appears to be inaccurate, contact Virtana Services.

From Environment Overview you can view the following:

  • Inventory Summary

    • Inventory Counts

  • Network Overview

    • Network Throughput

    • Conversation Summary

    • Compute Instances - Network Service Details

In the Inventory Summary, you can verify that the numbers in the number of virtual devices in the Total Names/IPs column matches the expected number of virtual devices. The first number in the column is the total number of devices identified in the import file. The second number indicates all of the devices with IP addresses. The discrepancy in numbers is likely due to some devices using the same IP address.

The In Conversations column shows the number of devices for which network traffic was observed during the on-premises data collection. A small discrepancy between this column and the Total column is normal, as some devices might have been powered off or otherwise not participating in network conversations during the data collection period.


In Network Overview, the Network Throughput wheel graph provides a visual representation of network traffic.

The graph displays relationships and throughput rates in all conversations. You can use this to determine if throughput is similar to the on-premise network, as would be expected.

The Conversation Summary provides the number of unique NetFlow conversation types.


The wheel graph shows the dependencies between internal IP addresses, external IP addresses, and compute instances, which are labeled on the outer rim of the wheel. The colored areas inside the wheel indicate connections between these three resources (IP addresses and compute instances). The sizes of the colored connections are a relative reflection of the throughput rates. The larger the connection, the higher the throughput rates, the greater the dependencies between the IP address and compute instance resources.


Hovering over any colored connection inside the wheel highlights that connection. Also, a tooltip displays throughput rates for the selected connection.

Hovering over any section of the outer rim displays a tooltip with detailed information about the resource and highlights all connections to that resource. The tooltip shows the number of compute instances, data in rate, data out rate, and data to self rate.

Use the Network Service Details table to Identify network services and the distribution of bandwidth usage by internal or external entities.
