DETAILED DESCRIPTION  

This Perl script logs in to a switch, gathers a list of all switches and ports, and for each port gathers the current performance data. This data is written to an HTML file which contains a table for each switch, and a graph for each port. 

REQUIREMENTS 

Operating System Windows NT, Windows 2000 and XP should work, but were not tested. 

Interface Perl and HTML 

Fabric Operating System One of the following at a minimum: 
2.6.0d 

 

Other Brcd API Scripting Toolkit 1.04 or greater. Perl version 5.61 or greater. Internet Explorer 5.5 or later. 

 

NOTES (INCLUDING LIMITATIONS) 

Install Perl first, and make sure it works from a Command Prompt. 
Install the Brcd API Perl module. 
Extract all files from the Winzip archive to a single folder. 
Modify 'sanports.txt' to suit your environment. If you do not want to use this, you must modify 'sanperf.pl'. 
From a Command Prompt run 'perl -x sanperf.pl'. 
Open up the generated 'sanperf.html' in a web browser. 
NOTE: Because of the heavy use of tables the page load may be slow. It takes just under 10 seconds to load the page in our environment (64 fabric ports).
