McData FibreChannel Switches: Traffic and Status of Ports
|Distribution:||official part of Check_MK|
This check monitors the operational status, link speed, traffic, frame counts,
C3 discards and CRC errors of the FibreChannel ports of McData FC switches. The
check uses the same functionality as if64. 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. For this check, these three are the same, namely a two-digit string
starting from "01".
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 all interfaces
discovered by this check are of type 6.
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.
