if you want to use MAPS, the switch must have a

 

Fabric Vision License

 

or

 

Fabric Watch and Performance Monitoring

 

the you have Fabric Vision capable License

 

With a Fabric Watch alone cannot be converted or activated MAPS

you can convert to or enable MAPS with FOS 7.2 or above.

 

see Page 7

 

MAPS configuration quick start

You can quickly start monitoring your switch using one of the predefined policies. Alternatively, if
you are already using Fabric Watch and would like MAPS to use the same thresholds, convert the
Fabric Watch policies into MAPS policies and then enable MAPS using the policy named
“fw_active_policy”. This provides the same monitoring functionality as Fabric Watch. Refer to
“Fabric Watch legacy policies” on page 23 for more information about Fabric Watch converted olicies.

 

MAPS Admin Guide 7.2 is attachen
