Managing Agents

Brocade Switches on earlier versions of FOS

Foglight for Storage Management collects information from Brocade switches on earlier versions of FOS via a Brocade SMI Agent on a management host. The SMI Agent talks to proxy switches, one in each fabric. These proxy switches are identified through the use of a configuration tool provided by the SMI Agent. Foglight for Storage Management does not perform any configuration of the SMI Agent. The account is native to the SMI Agent.

For information on acquiring, installing, and setting up the Brocade SMI Agent, see:

Your environment must meet the following requirements:

Brocade switches are not configured as Access Gateway switches. Foglight for Storage Management does not collect from switches configured as Access Gateway switches.

Configuring Agents to Monitor Brocade SAN Switches

You configure an agent to monitor the Brocade management server hosting the SMI Agent. All switches managed by this management server are monitored. For details, see Configuring Agents to Monitor Storage Devices.

Cisco SAN Switches
