We have been using HP Virtual Connect 8Gb 20-port Fibre Channel Module for c-Class BladeSystem. As far as I know they are (internaly) Brocade modules. I would like to monitor them (from performance point of view). Is there any non-commercial software which let me do that ? What I mean is to have a history of ports performance (even for a few months). At first I thought to use some SNMP-based software (like CACTI) but I don't have any eperience with it.
Can you share your experiance you how do you monitor them ?

HP Virtual Connect 8Gb 20-port Fibre Channel Module for c-Class BladeSystem is product by Qlogic which HP (re)sells as OEM.
Most probably it can be monitored, but not the same as is with the actual Brocade switches, Cacti templates for Brocade for instance will not work.
The actual Brocade switches for HP C enclosures can be managed and monitored as usual
