DETAILED DESCRIPTION  <br/>

<br/>

This is a cfgMaker for MRTG that is built from the ground up to build configs for Brocade Switches. It was built for 24k switches but should work with other 2GB switches, and possibly 1GB if modified. The config file that is output will build based on the ports, whether up or down, to collect Rx/Tx stats, Readys Exceeded vs No Transmit Credits and Encoding Error/Disparity Error Inside vs Outside Frames. Credit is given when/where it is due. <br/>

<p/>

REQUIREMENTS  <br/>

<br/>

Operating System  Windows Xp Pro, but truely with some edits any perl-enabled OS should work with minor mods 

Interface MRTG, which has a commandline and HTML files 

Fabric Operating System v4.2.0b, but should work with all v4.x 

Other Give me Feed Back or Change Requests....
