Brocade B-series and HP SIM

I am trying to setup HP SIM to monitor the Brocade switches using SNMP on HP SIM. HP SIM discover and recognize the device. The manage protocol shows up correctly:Management Protocols SNMP:1.0, SSH:SSH2.0-OpenSSH_3.8.1p1. The issue I am running into is the alert. When I disable and enable the port on the Brocade switch, I do not get the alert or see it in the HP SIM event logs. Does anyone know a way to test the Brocade switch with HP SIM? Keep in mind the Brocade switches are in production.

Thanks in advance

rbash: trackchangeshow: command not found

Re: Brocade B-series and HP SIM

Thanks for the advisory. I finally got the the brocade switch to work with HP SIM. Does anyone know if HP SIM can alert me if there are performance issue on the brocade switch?

I don't think so.

Check out the feature toptalkers and the program DCFM with fabric watch for that.
