FCIP monitoring

Is there consideration for providing for monitoring of FCIP tunnels on Brocade SAN switches?



  • no plans, I do not think it is widelly used
  • many storage vendors utilize fcip tunnels for the method of storage replication.  Brocade does have blades to go into their directors, however they also have specific switches for building fcip tunnels (7800, 7840, and the latest the 7810).

    While Stor2rrd does collect on the physical port utilization (which btw, is an ethernet connection), what I would like to see, (if it's possible to pull from BNA), is information from the fcip tunnel/circuit, which shows how much of the tunnel capacity is actually being used, compression %.
