Virtual Network Visualization

OpenSolaris supports virtual networks using virtual interfaces connected with virtual switches. This feature was introduced with Project Crossbow in OpenSolaris 2009.06. To visualize the internal network(s), I created a perl script which takes the output of dladm show-link and dladm show-linkprop -o link,value -p zone and generates a dot-File, which then can be rendered using Graphviz.

$STYLE{'phys'} = "color=black";
$STYLE{'vnic'} = "color=blue";
#$STYLE{'unknown'} = "fontcolor=red";
$STYLE{'up'} = "fontcolor=green";
 
print "digraph vnet {\n";
 
open INPUT, "dladm show-link|";
# skip first line
<INPUT>;
while (defined($line=<INPUT>)) {
	if ($line =~ /^([^\s]+)\s+([^\s]+)\s+([^\s]+)\s+([^\s]+)\s+([^\s]+)$/) {
		$s = $STYLE{$2};
		$s .= ",".$STYLE{$4} if defined($STYLE{$4});
		print "	// $line	$1 [$s];\n";
		if ($5 ne '--') {
			print "	$1 -> $5;\n";
		}
	}
}
close INPUT;

	if (($line =~ /^([^\s]+)\s+([^\s]+)$/) && ($2 ne '--')) {
