Topology Details Incremental Search Feature
Begin typing in the search bar. Matching results auto-updates the details dashboard.
A practical example of using the incremental search feature is during a fabric upgrade or downgrade, especially in larger Fabrics with many devices. Grouping specific switches into separate Fabric Resource Groups (FRGs) for controlled upgrades and reboots occurring at staggered times are then searchable by FRG name using the search feature. This method is illustrated in the following example filtering on a specific Fabric Resource Group (FRG).
