Setting and displaying the reliability counter for N_Port monitoring

You can set the reliability count of static change notifications (SCNs) counted during a five-minute period before the link between a N_Port on a Switch in Access Gateway mode and an F_Port on a FC fabric is considered unreliable.

Access Gateway mode must be enabled for this procedure to succeed.

To set the reliability count, use the counter reliability value command while in ag configuration mode for the switch. The default value is 25 SCNs per 5 minutes. You can set from 10 to 100 SCNs per 5 minutes.

  1. Enter the configure terminal command to enter global configuration mode.
    switch# configure terminal
  2. Enter the rbridge-id id command to enter RBridge ID mode for the specific switch.
    switch(config)# rbridge-id 2
  3. Enter the ag command to enter Access Gateway configuration mode.
    switch(config-rbridge-id-2)# ag
  4. Enter the counter reliability value command to change the counter value.
    switch(config-rbridge-id-2-ag)# counter reliability 50
  5. Enter the counter reliability command without a value to display the current reliability counter. In the following example, a counter value of 50 is returned.
    switch(config-rbridge-id-2-ag)# counter reliability
    () (50)
