I'm looking for some feedback and ideas on a new system I've just been assigned...
I need to create a web app (C#) that will build a network diagram, have all of the components in a DB (servers, switches, UPS, etc) and have the app dynamiclly build it with relationships graphically. And be able to click on a particular item, view its
details and change its info. Obviously a standard data driven gridview would not work for this...
Has anyone ever built anything like this or know of an addon, 3rd party component or anything that would work?

From your description, it seems that you want to create a network diagram in your asp.net webform to show the server, switchers and other facilities information, right?
I suggest that you can use Visual Studio Team Architecture edtion to generate the network diagram, in that diagram, you can add, remove the facility object, and build the relationship between them. After you deployed all the settings, you can generate the
html edition of your network system diagram. And just add a ifarme to load that html file from your asp.net web form.

HI........ I am having the same situation now and want to draw the network diagram.
Can you share with me how have you done this task?

A dynamic network diagram is created instantly with a few simple inputs from you…
For example, the following [url=http://www.netbraintech.com]Network Diagram[/url] was
created by inputting source and destination IP into NetBrain software. The rest is all
automatic. This can be very handy when you troubleshoot a slow application.
