Command Console
Introduction to SWCC
The Compaq StorageWorks Command Console (SWCC) Fibre Channel
Switch software lets you manage your switches, fabric, and storage subsystem
from the same window. After the software is installed, you can access,
manage, and configure a switch by double-clicking the Fabric Window icon in
SWCC’s Navigation window.

Overview of Web Management Tools
Web Management Tools let you manage and monitor a Storage Area Network
(SAN) composed of Compaq StorageWorks Fibre Channel and SAN Switches.
Web Management Tools
Web Management Tools let you interact dynamically with any switch in the
SAN to monitor status and performance. To manage the switch over the Web,
launch SWCC as described in Chapter 1, or log on to a switch from a host with
a Java-enabled Web browser by means of the Internet or Intranet. Web
Management Tools display information you can use to make overall topology
decisions and provide a means to make administrative changes. Security is
enforced by a username and encrypted password.
Remote Management Features
Web Management Tools provide and feature:
NOTE: The HotJava browser is not supported.
■
Switch identification in the network
■
Fabric topology and routing information
■
Switch and port configuration information
■
Real-time graphical switch and port status and statistics report

Operational Concepts
When using Web Management Tools, note the following:
■
Fields that can be modified are highlighted.
■
Hints display in the bottom left of your browser when you position your
mouse over highlighted areas.
■
When making changes in the Admin page, the Response Page shows
whether each individual configuration change was committed or

■
Java is disabled in some versions of Netscape Navigator and must be
enabled by selecting both the Enable Java and the Enable Java Script
options in the Preferences/Advanced menu.
■
Java applications can hang Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet
Explorer (IE) on Windows NT after Service Pack 3 due to the True
Color graphics-specific mode. To work around this problem, either
change the Windows NT display settings to other than True Color, or
download Microsoft’s hotfix to modify WIN32K.SYS. The hotfix is
available from Microsoft Technical Support.

3-2 Compaq StorageWorks SAN Switch Web Management Tools Reference Guide
Fabric View Page
The Fabric View page is a global page that shows all switches in the fabric.
This page can show up to 32 switches in a grid and uses IP addresses or switch
names to connect to individual switches. Each switch must have a unique
name that matches the correct IP address by the name resolution protocol in
use by the Web client. If a switch name is not recognized by the name
resolution protocol, the switch can be accessed by typing its IP address. To
enter an IP address, double-click the switch image while pressing down the
Shift key, then enter the IP address or host name into the dialog box that
displays.
The lines between switches represent known fabric connectivity, but they do
not indicate how the switch is connected to the fabric. The Fabric View page
displays the front panel of each switch. Double-click a switch’s image to
display the General Switch View page for that switch. Click the Fabric
Topology button at the bottom of the Fabric View page to display the Fabric
Topology View page.

Performance View Page
Access the Performance View page by double-clicking the Perform button on
the General Switch View page. The Performance View page displays port and
switch throughput in bytes per second. Each port is numbered and throughput
for the entire switch displays under the individual port readings.
The horizontal axis represents time elapsed. The port throughput graphs hold
up to 60 seconds of performance data, and the switch throughput graph holds
up to 4 minutes of performance data. The vertical axis in each graph shows
throughput (in bytes per second). The graphs are automatically scaled
depending on the switch activity.
The total throughput value is the throughput sum for all ports. The throughput
number represents the number of bytes received plus the number of bytes
transmitted each second. Since the switch also transmits all data it receives, the
total throughput for the switch can be stated as one-half of the throughput sum
of all ports.
