Microsoft’s CodePlex Releases Visio SharePoint 2010 Network Topology Add-In

Visio SharePoint 2010 Network Topology Add-In provides a pictorial representation of SharePoint 2010 Farm, its servers and their services.

“SharePoint Network Topology Diagram Add-in leverages Visio services to deliver a near real time intuitive rendering of the status of SharePoint farm’s infrastructure and associated services. Visio Graphics services – A key part of SharePoint 2010, enables customers to share their dynamic data driven Visio diagrams and dashboards within SharePoint. This helps extend the reach of valuable information and insights across relevant teams within the enterprise for capacity planning and general IT maintenance.

The timer job fetches all the key technical metrics about the SharePoint farm infrastructure using SharePoint object model and WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation). It’s frequency can be adjusted based on specific administrative needs. The timer job creates a SharePoint list that is linked to a Visio diagram. A client add-in helps you generate, customize and link the output of the timer job to a Visio diagram by using a wizard driven interface.

Upon publishing the Visio diagram within SharePoint, Visio services enable users to refresh their diagram from within SharePoint .”
