Link Cost

Can anyone explain to benefits within switch routing of modifying link cost settings. Background: I have a set of Brocade switches that I use for a replication link. The brocade ports from my storage device fail often under heavy load. I noticed that in the routing configuration the link cost for my trouble ports is set to -1. All of my other switches in my SAN have much higher LINK cost settings.

Re: Link Cost

probably is the BB Credit incorrect. Selct "switchdisable" and run the command "configure" to see is correct configured
