    Hello Everyone, 

     

    I am new to SAN. I am currently reading Fabric OS Command Reference Manual. However, it is difficult to me to understand the output. I would like to know if there is another manual I can read with explaination. Best Practice maybe? Any suggestion is welcome.

     

    Thanks a lot!

    Thanks a lot for your response. 

     

    I have those manuals already. my question was, for example, 

     

    if I ran portshow x/x

     

    here was the output as follow. when I saw " Lli: 537062",  I was trying to find explainantion on what does this number mean, and why it was keep going? what direction should I go for further investigationa and troubleshooing?
