Hitachi HNAS: FibreChannel Interfaces
|Distribution:||official part of Check_MK|
This check monitors FibreChannel interfaces of Hitachi HNAS storage systems.
The check is identical to if64 with the restriction that ifHCInUcastPkts,
ifHCInMulticastPkts, ifHCInBroadcastPkts, ifHCOutUcastPkts, ifHCOutMulticastPkts,
ifHCOutBroadcastPkts, ifOutDiscards, ifOutErrors and ifOutQLen are always 0 and
ifPhysAddress is empty, because these fields do not exist in this case. Please
refer to the if64 manpage for further documentation.
There are three allowed ways to specify an interface: its index, its description
and its alias. Here, the index is built from the interface ID as a three-digit
number prefixed with the ID of the ClusterNode, eg. 1002 for interface 2 on
ClusterNode 1. The description and the alias are given by the interface and the
ClusterNode ID separated by a dot, eg. 1.2 for interface 2 on ClusterNode 1.
One service is created for each interface that fulfills configurable conditions
(rule "Network interface and switch port discovery").
By default, these are interfaces which are currently found up and are of type 6,
32, 62, 117, 127, 128, 129, 180, 181, 182, 205 or 229. Note that the interfaces
discovered by this check do not have a type, so this restriction does not apply
Grouping: In some situations, you do not want to monitor a single
interface but a group of interfaces that together form a pool.
This check supports such pools by defining groups. The data of all members is
accumulated and put together in a single grouped interface service.
