This particular Enterprise Bundle consists of Fabric Watch, ISL Trunking and Advanced Performance Monitoring.Brocade Fabric Watch enables each switch to constantly watch its SAN fabric for potential faults - and automatically alert network managers to problems before they become costly failures. Fabric Watch tracks a variety of SAN fabric elements, events, and counters. Monitoring fabric-wide events, ports, transceivers, and environmental parameters permits early fault detection and isolation as well as performance measurement. Unlike many systems monitors, Fabric Watch is easy to configure. Network administrators can select custom fabric elements and alert thresholds - or they can choose from a selection of preconfigured settings. In addition, it is easy to integrate Fabric Watch with enterprise systems management solutions. By implementing Fabric Watch, storage and network managers can rapidly improve SAN availability and performance without installing new software or system administration tools.Brocade ISL Trunking is ideal for optimizing performance and simplifying the management of multi-switch SAN fabrics containing Brocade 1, 2, and 4 Gbit/sec switches and directors and the 8 Gbit/sec solutions. When two or more adjacent ISLs in a port group are used to connect two switches with trunking enabled, the switches automatically group the ISLs into a single logical ISL, or "trunk". The throughput of the resulting trunk can be anywhere from4 Gbit/sec to as much as 68 Gbit/sec.Brocade Advanced Performance Monitoring is essential for optimizing fabric performance, maximizing resource utilization, and measuring end-to-end service levels in large Storage Area Networks (SANs). Based on Brocade Frame Filtering technology and a unique performance counter engine, Brocade Advanced Performance Monitoring is a comprehensive tool for monitoring the performance of networked storage resources. This tool helps reduce total cost of ownership and over-provisioning while enabling SAN performance tuning, reporting of service level agreements, and greater administrator productivity.
