Problem this snippet solves:

This application will replicate the network status functionality found in the BIG-IP management GUI with a PowerShell console implementation.

The BIG-IP Management GUI has a feature called the Network Map that includes a summary of the objects on the system and their current statuses. This tech tip will take that GUI component and break it down into the underlying iControl method calls and present an alternative implementation from within Windows PowerShell.
