      Description

      Problem Statement

      Being able to visualize your topology is amazing. Unfortunately the current implementation for displaying the topology leaves a bit to be desired. Having the nodes in the graph floating across the screen while trying to read it is distracting and makings it difficult to read complex topologies. Additionally there are no real legends or on screen help/hints/documentation that explain what is being shown.

      Proposal

      Re-implement how we display the topology using a different JS library that makes reading and understanding the graph significantly easier. Make use of the existing visualization APIs, but simply swap out the rendering library. Additionally provide a better key/legend/documentation around the visualization.
