Uplink port utilization in Virtual Connect

Ramu had a VC port utilization question:

 

************

 

One of the customer wants to see network uplink port utilization in VC module. While the fcTxByteRate in “show statistics” command gives bytes/s on FC links, but not able to find any equivalent for network utilization.

 

Also can we set threshold on uplink ports for utilization and get alert if utilization is above the set threshold?

 

***************

 

Info from Vincent:

 

*****************

 

The throughput statistics feature was designed for this. Look for “statistics-throughput” in the CLI user guide for VC >= 3.30, and for “throughput statistics” in the GUI user guide if VC >= 3.70

You can get an SNMP trap if a port utilization crosses a high- or low-water mark, but the water marks are not configurable currently. They’re documented in the user guide as well.

Other input?
