Monitoring Fibre Channel switches (HNAS server only)

Server and Cluster Administration Guide for Hitachi NAS Platform

Part Number

HNAS servers allow you to add Fibre Channel (FC) switches to the System Monitor, so you can easily check FC switch connectivity status, which indicates whether the NAS Manager received a response to an Ethernet ping of its last known IP address. The connectivity status does not indicate whether the FC switch has connectivity with the storage subsystem.

When adding an FC switch to the System Monitor, you can associate it with one or more servers. After an FC switch has been associated with a server, you can monitor switch connectivity status, display log events and SNMP traps, download FC switch diagnostic information, and configure emailing of switch-related diagnostic information.
