Clears all nodes and lines that are currently displayed.
Clear World Map
Clears the world map that are currently displayed.
Centers the viewing display on the location that is the average distance from all the nodes.
Searchs a directory (./Data for standalone, a URL for Applet) and then lists the files in a pop up window. The user may then choose one to download. The applet only display `.fvl' files, while the standalone displays all files.
Load World Map
Loads a map when displaying in an geographical mode.
The user can choose multiple files and toggle between them by selecting file names listed.
Exit from Plankton
Adds node to current network when the mouse is clicked inside the display.
Add a line between two existing nodes. First click and hold down the button of the mouse over a node. Then drag the mouse over to another node. Then let the button go.
Move the mouse over either a line or a node and then click on and the object will be removed.
Allows the user to select nodes. Selected nodes will change there postions when the mouse button is held down and the mouse is dragged around inside of the display.
Select a node and all it's children. Where all it's children means those nodes which are placed below it in the format process.
Deselect All Objects
Deselects any selected nodes.
Changes a node into a root node or the other way around when the mouse is clicked on it.
Select Root by Name
Selects all nodes that contain a string in their name and Changes them into root nodes.
Will move the relative location of all the nodes when the user holds down the mouse and drags it around.
Attempts to place nodes in a tree which grows from the root nodes away from the center. This is done to all nodes.
Step by Step
Allows the user to see how hierarchy grows or shrinks from the roots one level at a time.
Places cache nodes according to their position in a NLANR caching hierarchy.
Places cache nodes resolving their latitude and longitude if they are provided in the data files.
Topological / Geographical
Display both topological and geopraphical hierarchy at a screen.
Represents peering relation as a line between nodes.
Represents peering relation as a triangluar line.
Will scale the current dimenions of the node locations by the amount indicated.
Will rotate the currently displayed graph by the degree indicated (effective for topological one only).
Adjust the thickness of lines drawn on the map by the amount indicated.
Adjust the size of nodes drawn on the map by the amount indicated.
Top Level Domain Name
Will create a color scale and then color each node by the top level domain name.
Mask/Color by HTTP Request
Will create a color scale and then color each line and node by the number of HTTP requests it gets and allow users to highlight nodes or lines interested in.
Returns the line's an node's color to their defualt colors.
