  • Fabric Watch - when you want to get alerts of various events, for example SFP degradation, security violations.
  • SAN health - when you want to make a health report or inventory of your fabrics.
  • Web Tools - when you don't want to administrate your fabric via CLI or Network Advisor there is also the Web Tools.
