McData FibreChannel Switches: Traffic and Status of Ports

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: SNMP

This check monitors the operational status, link speed, traffic, frame counts, C3 discards and CRC errors of the FibreChannel ports of McData FC switches. The check uses the same functionality as if64. Please refer to the if64 manpage for further documentation.


There are three allowed ways to specify an interface: its index, its description and its alias. For this check, these three are the same, namely a two-digit string starting from "01".


One service is created for each interface that fulfills configurable conditions (rule "Network interface and switch port discovery"). By default, these are interfaces which are currently found up and are of type 6, 32, 62, 117, 127, 128, 129, 180, 181, 182, 205 or 229. Note that all interfaces discovered by this check are of type 6.

Grouping: In some situations, you do not want to monitor a single interface but a group of interfaces that together form a pool. This check supports such pools by defining groups. The data of all members is accumulated and put together in a single grouped interface service.
