Brocade Slow Drain videos

At EMC World 2015, I bumped into Dennis Makishima at a Brocade Customer appreciation event and we ended up spending most of the time talking about our mutual appreciation of the "Slow Drain" issue and a new Brocade feature (SDDQ) that was intended to help address the problem.  Shortly after this meeting we setup a regular meeting series and included a bunch of other folks (e.g., Howard Johnson) to discuss what we could do to address congestion related problems together.  With this goal in mind, EMC has released a number of KB articles on the topic as well as a blog post that describes what a slow drain is and how to detect/prevent/remediate these issues.  Brocade recently provided a number of videos (featuring Dennis and Howard) that provide a high level overview of the slow drain problems and they are worth a view if you are interested in the topic.
