McData EOS B2B troubleshooting

Hi,

We are still having a mixed fabric with brocade and mcdata switches.

Our mcdata switches are the oldest and are also functioning as core switches for our ISL's.

Is there a command like the brocade "bottleneckmon" were I can monitor eventuel B2B problems?

What is the name of the brocade "Extended Fabric" license when talking about McData?

Kind regards,

Joeri

Bottleneckmon or equivalent command is "AFAIK" not available on McDATA Plattforms.

Intrepid 6064 , 6140 and i10K, can be populated with XPM Blade.

Thx for the fast reply!

How can I troubleshoot B2B problems on the ISLs on the Core McData switches?

Which values do I need to take a look at?

as mentioned, such command like Bottleneckmon in McDATA Plattforms are unknown to me.

Some defect "AFAIK" , as be closed in new EOS release, you should check in Release Notes depend EOS Level is running.

Re: McData EOS B2B troubleshooting

I will migrate all McData switches to one fabric and all brocade switches to the other fabric. So I will have one fabric which will be running FOS and this will allow me to perform in-depth troubleshooting.

Thanks for all your help!

kind regards,

Joeri
