Monitoring errors and warnings on Brocade 5100, 5300, 5470?

Hi.

I have 3 types of Brocade SAN Switch:5470, IBM System Storage SAN80B (Brocade 5300), IBM System Storage SAN40(Brocade 5100) , allrswith FAB OS 6.4.2b.

Switch Brocade 5470 have a license installed: FullFabric, EnhancedManagement.

Switch Brocade 5300 and 5100 have a license installed: EnhancedManagement, FabricWatch, FullFabric,  Trunking.

I need to monitor errors and important alerts and warnings.

How can this be done?

I have 2 servers (Win 2003 and 2008) that have full access to the IP address of switches.

I can use them to install a monitoring system.

I apologize for my terrible English.

Thank you in advance for your reply.

Thank you.

I got a couple of questions.

1. I have a few more switches 5470, which are connected to the factory in Access Gateway mode. I can set up monitoring, if such a switch is not FullFabric licensed ?

2. Existing licenses sufficient for monitoring? I think yes (FullFabric&FabricWatch).
