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