BNA: Monitoring VDX Switches

  • 1.  BNA: Monitoring VDX Switches

    Posted 12-02-2019 10:35 AM
    Greetings,

    According to information posted in te datasheet at  
    https://www.dataswitchworks.com/datasheets/Network_Advisor_DS.pdf , "Brocade Network Advisor provides comprehensive management of data center fabrics, including configuration, monitoring, and management of Brocade VDX..."

    Question: Will BNA continue to support the functionality described above for VDX switches going forward?
    (Extreme Networks acquired Brocade's Data Center Networking Business.)

    Thanks,

    Uwe

    @Uwe Grumes   Uwe, as you mentioned, the VDX series was acquired by Extreme, afaik they also got a BNA version to support the management of the VDXes.   Recent BNA versions of Broadcom/Brocade already don't support the management of the VDXes anymore.   So basically you'll have to ask Extreme what their plans of (their) BNA are.  ​
