Abstract:

Brocade® Advanced Performance Monitoring—based on Brocade Frame Filtering technology and a unique performance counter engine—is a comprehensive tool for monitoring the performance of networked storage resources. This ASIC-based monitoring tool helps reduce the total cost of ownership and over-provisioning while enabling Storage Area Network (SAN) performance tuning, reporting of Service Level Agreements (SLAs), and greater administrator productivity.
