I am planning to collect switcfcport stats every minute on the fabric which contains 20 switches... roughly around 400 ports.
Which is the right interface to go
1. SMI - Enumerate Brocade_SwitchFcportStats OR
2. SNMP -
which interface is good so that i don't want to overhead the switch....

I'm just guessing here
1. I think the interval is too small and maybe 5 mins shd give u a good average.
2. I havent seen the impact of using SMI for gathering information, but for sure polling the snmp agent on the switch causes overhead and sometimes a reboot of the switch.

Sorry for the late reply. Can you please get some Information from the engineers so that i can decide upon which way to go for collecting port Statistics information. It will be for every 3 minutes i will be querying the switch. I should not overhead the production switch.
Please let me which is one better... SMI or SNMP?
Awaiting for your reply
