Description

Connector

These fields display data when a transceiver module is inserted for FlexFabric or Flex-10 interconnects.

Type

Type of transceiver module inserted, for example SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable Transceiver) or SFP+.

Extended Identifier

Hexadecimal number that identifies the device (vendor specific) connected to the uplink port.

Vendor

Name of the vendor that manufactured the device connected to the uplink port.

Vendor OUI

Unique 24-bit OUI (Organizationally Unique Identifier) assigned to the vendor by the IEEE Registration Authority.

Part number

Part number of the device connected to the uplink port.

Revision

Hardware revision number of the device connected to the uplink port.

Remote connection

These fields display when the uplink port is connected to an Ethernet network.

Type

Port type for remote connection, can be Ethernet, External, or Unknown.

Port type

Port type of the remote connection. For example, Local, Ethernet, or Unknown.

Port ID

ID of the external port. For example, X1 through X10.

Port description

Detailed description of the port type.

Address type

Type of address, can be IPV4 or IPV6.

Address

IP address of the interconnect to which the uplink port is connected.

System name

Symbolic name of the device set by the network administrator.

System description

Vendor-generated description of the device.

System capabilities

Configuration of the port on the device, can be bridge, trunk, bridge and trunk, or bridge, router.

Downlinks

(Cisco FEX modules only)

List of the downlink ports to which the uplink port is connected.
Port

Port number.

Server Hardware

Hyperlink to the connected server hardware.

DCBX Information

The Data Center Bridging Exchange (DCBX) protocol information is displayed only for FCoE-capable ports when assigned to an FCoE network.

Overall status
Status of the DCBX protocol exchange with peer entity. It is the combination of AP and PFC state. PG is not included in the overall status.
OK

No error is detected in the DCBX operation.

Failed

An error occurred in one of the DCBX information exchanges. Check the AP, PFC, or PG state for the reason for the error. For more information and troubleshooting, refer to the hardware documentation for the switch.

AP state

Application protocol status.

PFC state

Priority-based flow control status.

PG state

Priority group status.

Direct attach

These fields display when an uplink port is connected to a Fibre Channel direct attach network.

FC domain ID

Unique Fibre Channel ID generated by the appliance for each interconnect.

FC port ID

Hexadecimal ID assigned to the port by the FC SAN.

Storage port WWN

World Wide Port Name of the storage port.

Storage node WWN

World Wide Node Name of the storage node.

Storage port name

Symbolic port name of the storage port to which the uplink port is connected.

Storage node name

Symbolic node name of the storage port to which the uplink port is connected.

FIP Snooping

(Active FCoE only)

These fields display when an uplink port is connected to an active FCoE module.
LAG

Link Aggregation Group ID for the ports within the LAG.

VLAN

VLAN ID associated with the FCoE network configured on the uplink set.

Downlink count

Number of server ports that are active or logged into an associated FCoE VLAN network.

FC Map

FCoE MAC address prefix provided by the Fibre Channel Forwarder (FCF) which is used to construct the FCoE MAC address on the server: FC MAP and FC ID.

FCF Name

FCF switch node WWN name associated with the FCoE VLAN. The name is provided by the FCF in snooped FIP messages.

Fabric Name

The fabric name associated with the FCoE VLAN. It is provided by the FCF in snooped FIP messages.

FCF MAC Address

In FCF mode, a single FCF MAC address per switch.

In NPV mode, the FCF MAC address for each port on the FCF switch that is part of the LAG.

Statistics

These fields display when an uplink port is on an interconnect that supports statistics. For example, Virtual Connect Fibre Channel interconnects do not support statistical data collection.

Port statistics data is refreshed at the same frequency as the interval between samples, which you can set using the Utilization sampling settings on the Logical Interconnects screen, or the Logical Interconnect Groups screen.

Transmitted errors

Number of errors that the port has transmitted since the connection was established or the last time the port counters were cleared.

Received errors

Number of errors that the port has received since the connection was established or the last time the port counters were cleared.

Bit Transfer Rate graph

Displays the bit transfer rate (transmitted and received) of the uplink port over time, and the average bit transfer rate.

You can change the sample collection rate using the Utilization Sampling settings on the Logical Interconnects screen, or the Logical Interconnect Groups screen.

Packet Transfer Rate graph

Displays the packet transfer rate (transmitted and received) of the uplink port over time, and the average packet transfer rate.

You can change the sample collection rate using the Utilization Sampling settings on the Logical Interconnects screen, or the Logical Interconnect Groups screen.

Advanced Statistics

These fields display if an uplink port is on an interconnect that supports statistical data collection, and if the interconnect is in a managed state.

The counters that appear depend on port type. Uplink and downlink port advanced statistics provides details.
