Checking Your Understanding

Now that you have completed the lab, see if you can answer these questions.

  1. How would you get a list of all of the nodes in an active topology?

  2. If you are using a topology filter in a Cookbook Recipe, will nodes that are not in the topology be included in Situations generated by that Recipe?

  3. You want to use the Topology API to add a connection between a load balancer and a webserver to your topology. Which should be the source node, and which should be the sink node?

  4. Which alert field do you need to populate to so that a Cookbook Recipe can choose between multiple topologies?

This concludes the lab.
