Software Components, Standard, Base Models
Frame Filtering
An ASIC based capability that enables new applications and features. The switch has the ability to
"view" the first 64 bytes of the Fibre Channel frame. At this time, Frame Filtering enables advanced
capabilities such as Advanced Zoning and Advanced Performance Monitoring.
Advanced Zoning
WWN Zoning and Access Control are enforced by hardware that provides the same simple
administration previously enforced only with software. Administrators can organize a physical fabric
into logical groups and prevent unauthorized access by devices outside the Zone.
Web Tools
Web Tools is an intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface that enables organizations to monitor and
manage SAN fabrics. Tasks can be performed through a Java-capable Web browser from a standard
laptop, desktop PC or workstation from any location within the enterprise.
EGM
Enhanced Group Management (EGM) is a FOS license that is included with all B-Series switches and
enables multi-switch operations. It helps automate operations across multiple switches to save time
and streamline repetitive operations, which are typically prone to error. EGM drives consistency across
fabrics, while minimizing the risk associated with potential downtime due to configuration mismatches.

QuickSpecs
HPE SN3000B Fibre Channel Switch
Product Highlights
EGM provides streamlined troubleshooting for more effective fabric monitoring and diagnosis.
HPE SAN Network Advisor Professional, Professional Plus, and Enterprise enable EGM functionality.
Customers have EGM functionality enabled within the hardware product and need only to make the
decision around which management application is right for them.
Adaptive Networking
Adaptive Networking (AN) is a family of technologies which allow flexible control of traffic movement
within the fabric which deliver application aware management of fabric resources. Applications may be
used with multiple protocols and multiple classes of service. It includes the following features:
Ingress Rate Limiting:
Allows the ingress bandwidth of a port to be throttled to a rate lower than negotiated with the SAN
node. This could be very useful for enterprises offering stepped levels of service and enforcing SLAs.
Quality of Service (QoS):
Enables zones with high, medium, and low priorities within a fabric on a zone by zone basis. This can
be very useful for prioritizing array replication over MANs and WANs over less critical traffic.
Traffic Isolation Zones:
Defines paths through a fabric for some or all nodes. Failover allows a non-preferred path to be used if
the preferred fails. TIZs use failover by default but it can be disabled if traffic should stop if a preferred
path fails. TIZ can be used to manually map out traffic flows within a fabric based on application,
priority, and topology.
Server Application
Optimization
Server Application Optimization (SAO) improves overall application performance for physical servers
and virtual machines. SAO, when deployed with B-Series Fibre Channel HBAs, extends B-Series
Adaptive Networking from the B-series SAN fabric to the server infrastructure. This delivers
application-level, fine-grain Quality of Service (QoS) management to the HBAs and related server
applications.
Solution Requirements:
•
SAO requires B-series HBA installed in the server

•
•
•
Monitoring and Alerting Policy Suite: A policy-based monitoring tool with pre-built rules and
automation that simplifies fabric-wide threshold configuration and monitoring.
Flow Vision: A comprehensive tool that enables administrators to identify, monitor, and
analyze specific application data flows without using taps to ensure optimized performance
Health and performance dashboard: A single customizable screen displayed in HPE SAN
Network Advisor that contains all critical SAN information for convenient review and analysis
Fabric Vision will be included by default in all HPE StoreFabric B-series Fibre Channel switches and
Directors bundled with Power Pack+ (with FOS 7.2.x and later*). In all other cases, Fabric Vision can be
enabled on HPE StoreFabric B-series Fibre Channel switches and Directors in any one of the following
ways
•
•
•
•
Fabric Watch
Application of the Fabric Vision LTU (FOS 7.2.x and later*)
Application of the Power Pack+ LTU (FOS 7.2.x and later*)

Upgrading existing Switch/Director loaded with both Advanced Performance Monitor (APM)
and Fabric Watch (FW) licenses to FOS 7.2.x or later*
* See HPE Spock for Hewlett Packard Enterprise supported versions of FOS 7.2.x
Fabric Watch is an optional license which enables each switch to monitor the SAN for potential faults
and automatically alert network managers to problems before they become failures. Fabric Watch
tracks a variety of SAN fabric elements, events, and counters. Monitoring fabric-wide events, ports,
SFPs, and environmental parameters permits early fault detection and isolation as well as performance
measurement. Each switch in the SAN needs its own Fabric Watch license.
NOTE: Fabric Watch has been obsoleted in FOS 7.4.0 and later. Users can migrate their Fabric
Watch settings to the Fabric Vison licensed Monitoring and Performance Suite (MAPS) prior to
upgrading.
Advanced Performance This optional enabling technology helps administrators monitor and watch specific fabric metrics -from a SID (Source ID) to a DID (Destination ID) -- so they can fine-tune and scale the fabric more
Monitor
efficiently. Plus, Advanced Performance Monitoring includes the ability for early warning detection of
hot spots within the fabric, a powerful tool for maintaining overall balanced performance.
Top Talkers is a component of Advanced Performance Monitoring and tracks the top traffic flows for
hosts and targets for a switch port or a switch. Top Talkers can help identify the ports that need
certain Quality of Service (QoS) attributes or it can help determine portions of the physical topology
that need reconfiguration.
NOTE: Advanced Performance Monitoring has been obsoleted in FOS 7.4.0 and later. Users can
utilize the Fabric Vision licensed Flow Vision features for performance monitoring.
Extended Fabric
Optional license which extends all of the scalability, reliability, and performance benefits of Fibre
Channel Storage Area Networks (SANs) beyond the native 10 km distance specified by the Fibre
Channel standard.
ISL Trunking
For high performance enhanced Trunking, this optional license logically groups up to eight E-ports to

devices)
Performs group switch management beyond the scope of Web Tools
Does not offer management of the SN8000B 8-slot or DC SAN Backbone Directors,
It is targeted for SMB customers that use FOS based SAN fabrics and require a management solution
for smaller SANs based on a single fabric.
SMB customers that initially start off with SAN Network Advisor Professional and have a small SAN
environment may over time feel the need for an enterprise-class product (SAN Network Advisor
Professional+ or SAN Network Advisor Enterprise) as their environments start to grow in size and
complexity, and as they start to uptake more enterprise-class functionality (such as Fibre Channel
Routing, FCIP, etc.). A non-disruptive upgrade path is available from SAN Network Advisor Professional
to SAN Network Advisor Professional+ or SAN Network Advisor Enterprise.
SAN Network Advisor
