There is nothing else on the top level IP Internet map except
routers, and the networks that connect them. If those networks are

Arranging the map: First turn off automatic layout for just the
IP Internet submap. Then move things around the way you like them.
If it is too dense, add location icons and cut (from this submap) groups
of router and networks and paste them into the location submaps.
See: Inst&Config Chap 6, Defining the Network Management Region.

that are not supported. So first understand what is supported, and
take database backups along the way.
