Is it possible to buy fabric watch licenses for blade centre switches which are in access gateway mode?

Hi Guys

Fabric Watch is an extremely handy license to have and should be on all your switches. It can detect and number of problems and send them out via SNMP traps/alerts to your monitoring applications.

Its saved me a number of times. Well worth the money.

Cheers

I agree, very usefull

but configuring is a nightmare and sometimes the results are funny.

Like TX and RX values above 100% after resetting counters.

But over all a good feature.
