Brocade NET Health

Brocade NET Health is an easy-to-use network discovery, audit, and health checking application for Brocade network switches. It is free to Brocade customers and partners.

A powerful, but easy-to-use tool, Brocade NET Health helps you automate the process of optimizing your Brocade networks. Designed to run efficiently and provide clear and simple reports, it enables you to:

  • Capture a point-in-time snapshot of your network environment with minimal effort
  • Audit your network to easily track changes
  • Check health parameters of your Brocade switches
  • Make more proactive decisions to optimize your network

How Brocade NET Health Works
To run Brocade NET Health, you need a workstation with IP access and user credentials for the devices you want to audit. The tool interacts non-intrusively with these devices, talking about two to five minutes to collect data per device. (Brocade NET Health uses http, telnet, and ssh ports.)

For greater efficiency, you can schedule audits to run in the background. All audits are cumulative. Multiple collection agents at different sites can be aggregated into a single file/report. The tool generates a .NETHealth audit file. To get a complete report of the diagnostics, you can e-mail the file as an attachment to or you can submit it via the upload page.

After Brocade processes your file, you will receive an e-mail with instructions on how to download the final report from your secure MyBrocade or Brocade Partner Network account. If you do not have a MyBrocade or Partner Network account, Brocade NET Health will automatically register you for access. Please allow five business days to get your report.
