Brocade Fabric Watch is an optional SAN health monitor. It 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 enables 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 preconfigured settings. In addition, it is easy to integrate Fabric Watch with popular enterprise systems management solutions.
