Abstract

See full text

A methodology for dynamically creating, modifying, and deleting nodal views of a managed network environment is presented. The methodology stores the group view information in a file that may be edited by a user. This allows the user to be able to dynamically configure group view information. The methodology also provides menubars, popup menus, and toolbar that are context sensitive to the group view that is selected.
