What are recommended or basic settings for Brocade Fabric Watch?

We have several 4100 switches in a flat fabric.

I am looking to get some insight to environmentals, performance etc.

Configuring Fabric Watch seems overwhelming. Is there an easy way to configure or a way to implement someone else's Fabric Watch configurations?

Re: What are recommended or basic settings for Brocade Fabric Watch?

Do you have the other guys switch configuration?? if yes, then delete all the configuration except for the fabric watch stuff. You can then download the configuration on any of the switches you like.

The defaults are fine for environmental problems, but if you need performance related counters you have to do this urself.  Fabric manager can help you in some ways. Read pg 170-171 of the FM admin guide PN 53-10000610-02
