Brocade SAN Health Diagnostics Capture

This powerful diagnostic uses a data capture application and a back-end report processing engine. After capturing switch diagnostic data, it automatically generates a Visio topology diagram and a detailed report of SAN fabrics, switches, and individual ports. Other useful information includes alerts, historical performance graphs, and recommended best practices.

Because it provides a point-in-time snapshot of your SAN, the SAN Health Diagnostics Capture is invaluable to your change-tracking process. For example, you can use it to track traffic pattern changes in weekly or monthly increments. And you can schedule it run it after primary business hours for added safety and convenience.

  • Support for Cisco MDS and Nexus switches
  • Detailed reporting and migration assistance for all legacy Brocade M-Series and Mi10k fabrics
