I have a few switches with mostly Brocade SFP:s and they all work within default thresholds. However, I also have a small handful of SFPs from another (supported) vendor for long distance ISL:s. These SFP:s have a slighly higher operational current than the default threshold, 50 mA.
I'm looking for a way to use Fabric Watch to change the alarm threshold for these ports, or rather SFP:s since it's the CURRENT I'm monitoring.
When looking at the thConfig and portThConfig commands it seems I can't quite accomplish this. I can change the threshold for _all_ SFPs with thConfig, and portThConfig will not monitor the CURRENT class.
Is such a configuration not within Fabric Watch, or am I missing something here? Could I go about this in another way?

i would like to make sure i understand what you are trying to accomplish. My assumption is that
you are trying to change the hi/low settings for the "CURRENT" thresholds for only specific ports, correct?

Correct. Out of all the ports, only two have this model of SFP. These SFPs draw slightly more than the default 50 mA, thus triggering an alert, but I don't want to raise the threshold for all SFPs, only these two.

Unfortunately at this time you cannot monitor different currents for individual ports.
Below are links to the specific pages in the Fabric OS Command reference Guide for thConfig and portThConfig:
