Switch monitoring only sees Fiber ports?

Jump to solution

So I fixed our switch monitoring in ECC today so that it can see performance on our 9509's, It looks like though that ECC only monitors the Fiber ports. I have 4 ports on the FCIP card that are the ethernet ports that I would like to monitor also, is there no what to watch them in ECC?

Unfortunately right now the FCC agent can only discover information on fiber ports. The Support Matrix has a note on this but it is hidden:

a. ControlCenter does not discover or support IP ports. ControlCenter only supports WWN and FWWN zoning. ControlCenter is tolerant of
4-port and 8-port IP Storage Service Modules (SSM).

Also please be aware that there have been reported issues on FCIP ports.  In some cases customers have been unable to discover the switch at all.  You obviously did not have this issue but it is something to be aware of.  I'm sorry I did not have better news.
