how to monitor aggregated links ?


we are running Brocade FCX in stacked mode with multiple link aggregations. How can I diagnoze link-aggregations ?

especially in LACP mode ?

I'd like to know when certain physical link is broken (but lacp or static aggregation is still available)

You can use
show trunk
show link-aggregate

Re: how to monitor aggregated links ?

it is very strange idea. we are running about 25 devices with 3 link-aggregations. I do not want to log in every day in the morning :-)

I understand how to do that manually, I'm looking for some kind of automation

     I would  highly recommend Brocade Network Advisor to manage the 25 old devices.  This is Brocade's NMS - Netowrk Management Server.

     With this to can point all the Syslog and SNMP info to BNA, create alearts and have change management of all the switches and routers.

     If you do not want to go wiht BNA, then use something like Nagios and point the SNMP and Syslog their.

     By default both Syslog and SNMP traps will fire for a interface down.
