Will Connectrix Mgr detect and report on an intermittent FC cables?


I would like to find out if Connectrix Manager will detect and send an alert on intermittent Fibre cable connections?

Follow-up questions:

-  Will intermittent errors be sent to the Connectrix Manager console and also to ESRS?

- Are there error thresholds that need to be met before the errors are reported?

My customer is asking these questions and at this time I don't know what version of Connectrix Manager they are using.  Assume that they are current with the switch firmware and CTX MGR code levels.

Thank you,
