Features

Enables Policy-based Monitoring that Simplifies Fabric-wide Threshold Configuration and Monitoring

Provides HP StoreFabric B-series switch health reports along with details on out-of-policy conditions to help pinpoint potential issues before they occur.
Historical HP StoreFabric B-series switch data is available to observe trends and determine if any action needs to be taken to prevent unplanned datacenter downtime.

Enables Users to Identify, Monitor and Analyze Application Data Flows without Using Taps

Enables non-disruptive monitoring of data flows and fabric latency to instantly determine which hosts and flows are affected by bottlenecks in order to optimize application performance.
Enables Host to LUN level traffic monitoring which represents an improvement over previous implementations that supported monitoring only at storage port level.
Offers a built in frame analyzer at each switch port which enables more powerful diagnostics and enables proactive monitoring and alerting.

Offers Advanced Link Diagnostics to Identify and Isolate Optic and Cable Problems Faster

Helps to detect faults in Fibre Channel SAN physical infrastructure pre-production.
Assists with troubleshooting of problems in production environments.
Enhances application performance and significantly reduces overall operational expenses for managing Fibre Channel SAN infrastructure.

Offers Consolidated Health and Performance Dashboards

One consolidated dashboard shows all critical issues and allows users to pinpoint problem areas making it convenient to use.
Integrated with HP SAN Network Advisor allowing users to deploy a single tool for SAN management, monitoring, configurations and diagnostics.
