About this talk

In the FCIA webcast “Protocol Analysis for High-Speed Fibre Channel Fabrics” experts covered the basics on protocol analysis tools and how to incorporate them into the “best practices” application of SAN problem solving. Our experts return for this 201 course which will provide a deeper dive into how to interpret the output and results from the protocol analyzers. We will also share insight into using signal jammers and how to use them to correlate error conditions to be able to formulate real time solutions. Root cause analysis requirements now encompass all layers of the fabric architecture, and new storage protocols that usurp the traditional network stack (i.e. FCoE, iWARP, NVMe over Fabrics, etc.) complicate analysis, so a well-constructed “collage” of best practices and effective and efficient analysis tools must be developed. In addition, in-depth knowledge of how to decipher the analytical results and then determine potential solutions is critical. Join us for a deeper dive into Protocol Analysis tools and how to interpret the analytical output from them. We will review: •Inter switch links (ISL) – How to measure and minimize fabric congestion •Post-capture analysis – Graphing, Trace reading, Performance metrics •Benefits of purposeful error injection •More Layer 2-3 and translation layers debug •Link Services and Extended Link Services - LRR Link Ready Rests You can watch the 1st webcast on this topic on-demand at http://bit.ly/2MxsWR7
