BNA 14.3 - What is the Detailed Definition of the FCIP " Link Retransmits"

  • 1.  BNA 14.3 - What is the Detailed Definition of the FCIP " Link Retransmits"

    Posted 09-04-2018 01:33 PM

    I am seeking a detailed definition of what is meant by FCIP tunnel "Link Retransmits" metric found in the BNA (v14.x).

     

    The BNA 14.3.0 guide on page 376 provides a very weakly worded definition.

     

     Link Retransmits — The number of retransmitted links.
     Timeout Retransmits — The number of retransmits due to timeout

     

    I am amiliar with fcip tunnel "Timeout Retransmits" condition, that is understood.

     

    However, there is no such thing as a "retransmitted link".   

     

    Anyone have a information source citing what the BNA developers meant by  

    Link Retransmits = The number of retransmitted links  ?

     

    The only assumption I can make is this "may" mean the retransmit of control frames

    when an FCIP tunnel is dropped for such things as loss of keepalive, but I could be

    wrong.
