    Fabric Analyzer Report

    The Fabric Analyzer report is a standardized report generated in Network Director to show information about a QFabric system, Virtual Chassis Fabric (VCF) or Virtual Chassis. There are two portions of the report: a report header and the report body. The contents of the report header are described in Table 1.

    Field

    Description

    NETWORK DIRECTOR REPORT:

    The type of report; in this case, the Fabric Analyzer report.

    Generated On:

    The date and time the report ran. The date format is: [Day of the Month] [Month] [Year]. The time format follows the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). For example: 07 December 2013 11:35 PM PST.

    Generated By:

    The username of the user that generated the report.

    Report Name

    The name of the report assigned when the report was created.

    Scope

    The report is generated from this view and node in the network.

    • Perspective—Can be a Logical View, Location View, or a Device View of the network.
    • Node—Represents the selected object on which the report is based.

    The contents of the report body depend on the fabric type:

    For a QFabric system, the report body contains these sections:

    • Data Plane Health Check—Shows the results of connectivity checks between each node and the fabric’s Interconnect devices and all other nodes.
    • Connectivity Check between Interconnects and Node Devices—Shows the results of connectivity checks between each node each Interconnect device.
    • Connectivity Check between Node Devices—Shows the results of connectivity checks between each node device and each other node device.
    • Data Plane Topology—Shows a diagram of the data plane topology.
    • Control Plane Topology—Shows a diagram of the control plane topology.

    For a VCF, the report body contains these sections:

    • Virtual Chassis Connectivity Status—Shows summary and status information about the VCF and its members.
    • Port Bandwidth Utilization—Shows information about the bandwidth used by each link between member devices.
    • VCF Health Check—Shows the connection status between each leaf device and the spine devices.

    For a Virtual Chassis, the report body contains these sections:

    • Virtual Chassis Connectivity Status—Shows summary and status information about the Virtual Chassis and its members.
    • Port Bandwidth Utilization—Shows information about the bandwidth used by each link between member devices.
