Fabric vision



I need to install Fabric Vision for my customer who get the license.


How it's works ?  It's a software to install on a server or we manage this using BNA (Network Advisor) ?

Brocade/Broadcom offers a Flow Vision Configuration Guide for each FOS level.

You can download the guide for the specific FOS level being used by your customer.

Flow Vision does take some studying (in my opinion) to understand all the bells and whistle.

Flow monitor, flow mirror and flow generator are some of the features in Flow Vision.


In its simplest form you can enable MAPS with conservative alert policy setting and have

the alerts sent to RASlog, email and/or SNMP.
