    does anybody know what the different column headers mean from the bladeportmap output?




    bladeportmap 1
    miniS=0 chips/Minis=1 bports/chip=40
    miniS=1 chips/Minis=1 bports/chip=40
    minis_count=2 chip_count=2 port_count=80

    CTL BPt UPt SPt MPt CPt IFi GPt M# C# Sw# G# ChID PBPt:ISL OID
    ENB 0 -1 -1 0 0 6 0 0 0 -1 512 CONDOR2 5/124: 0x43128000
    ENB 1 -1 -1 1 1 5 1 0 0 -1 513 CONDOR2 8/124: 0x43128001
    ENB 2 -1 -1 2 2 5 2 0 0 -1 513 CONDOR2 8/125: 0x43128002








    I know that BPt is the number of the backend ports, but what do all the other column headers mean? I can't find an explanation either in WWW nor in a CMD reference.

    Conjecture from myself:


     BPt:Backend port

     UPt:Unique port(Index)

     SPt:Slot port(port number in slot)

     MPt & CPt: port number in ASIC

     IFi: NONE

     GPt:port group

     M# & C#:ASIC Number

     Sw#:bankend or external port


     ChID: ASIC type

     PBPt:ISL: Portmap Bankend between port-blade and CR-balde



    If have other or further conjecture , please told me

    CTL Indicates whether the port is enabled (ENB) or disabled (DIS).

    BPt Blade port number. Blade ports can be internal or external.

    UPt User port number. These ports have external connections.

    SPt Slot port number.

    MPt Brocade internal use only.

    CPt Chip port number—the port number on the chip itself.

    IFi Interface index.

    GPt Brocade internal use only.

    M# Mini-switch number.

    C# Chip number within a blade.

    Sw# Brocade internal use only.

    G# Trunk group number.

    ChID ASIC type.

    PBPt:ISL Slot and port of the connected peer.

    Brocade published a document in June 2014 called "Performance Issue Troubleshooting Guide" version 1.5

    that explains in detail the bladeportmap including the table headers.    The document as references
