Thanks for the answer.
I just need to know how to monitor the strategic counters and their tresholds for this brocade switch ??
If i can have links to special documents ?
firmware version is : Fabric OS: v7.3.1d
we have not Fabric Vison lic.

We have Brocade 6520 96 port and 6505 24 port switches.
In order to interpret the thresholds of the counters returned by the SNMP graphs under Cacti, I want to know the max thresholds, min normal of these counters:
For example, the counters "RX words" and "TX words" ..... As well as "TX Frames" and "RX Frames"; "RX Bad EOFS"; "RX CRC Errors" ......
Fabric OS: v7.3.1d

for RX and TX both words and frames, the max counter is
max 10 digit = 9999999999 and min one digit = 0
for --->>>"RX Bad EOFS"; "RX CRC Errors"
i believe ??? the same 0 and the max. value can reached the same = 10 digit

Thank you Antonio, but I would like to know how these counters are measure ? Their measure units (see attachement : Kb, Mb, u ...m )?
The current value displayed is such normal or not, when compare it with the theoretical threshold of these counters given by Brocade. Thanks if you have any official documentation that gives these explanations.

it sounds to me that you are looking for Cacti/display related information.
Found this on the cacti forums:
10^-18 a - atto
10^-15 f - femto
10^-12 p - pico
10^-9 n - nano
10^-6 u - micro
10^-3 m - milli
0 (no unit)
10^3 k - kilo
10^6 M - mega
10^9 G - giga
10^12 T - tera
10^15 P - peta
Is that what you are looking for?

thanks for your reply.
It meets in part my need (with regard to counters units).
But I'm still waiting if anyone has an idea about Brocade theoretical thresholds (minimum ... normal .... maximum) for the measured values of these counters for each port ?? Is there a link for documentation ??

I noticed your last post has gone unanswered by the community. Based on your current contract with an OEM and our legal obligations, we cannot engage with you via a formal support channel (a.k.a. our TAC Engaged Program).
That being said, you've had some great feedback thus far and hopefully the Community or your OEM provider will come through for you on this one.
Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help facilitate your case resolution.

Thank you for your reply and thank you also to the community participants who responded. I did not get the desired answers but I hope the topic will interest others. I will also ask the question to our OEM provider.
