Logical Topology

The Logical Topology dashboard provides a visualization/illustration of the configured wireless service, the associated ESS pushed through the wireless service, VLAN (if applicable), and the stations connected to each ESS in a hierarchical pattern. The physical topology is representational; you cannot modify the placement of devices on this page.

You can access the Logical Topology dashboard through Monitor > Topology > Logical Topology.
The Logical Topology dashboard.

The hierarchy of devices in the logical topology view is FortiWLM MEA > ESS > VLAN > Station. Each of the devices in the hierarchical view is represented by a clickable node. Click on a node to display the next available devices in the hierarchy. Hover over the device name for additional information about the device.

If a controller or AP name is on the right of its icon, it implies that the device has no child associated with it in the hierarchy.

You can filter and view the devices selectively. The available filter options are: ESS, VLANs, and device MAC Address.
