Abstract

A program is disclosed that will take a topology data file representing either a 9370 or 9406 multi-rack processor configuration and graphically display the file (Fig. 1) on a 3270 graphic terminal, produce a report describing configuration, and assist in verifying the application used to produce the file. A menu-driven interface allows a user to display the topology file in graphic form or to browse any of the associated error, message, or report files that also contain information about a given configuration.
