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

Product Highlights
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. EGM provides streamlined troubleshooting for more effective fabric
monitoring and diagnosis.
HP 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.
In-flight Compression
and Encryption
In-flight compression optimizes network performance within the data center and over longdistance links. Data is compressed at the source and uncompressed at the destination.
Performance varies by data type, but generally achieve 2:1 compression with minimal impact on
performance. Compression can be used in conjunction with in-flight encryption.
In-flight encryption minimizes the risk of unauthorized access for traffic within the data center and
over long-distance links. It is switch-to-switch encryption, not device or data-at-rest encryption.
Data is encrypted at the source and decrypted at the destination. Encryption and decryption are
performed in hardware using the AES-GCM-256 algorithm, minimizing any impact on
performance. Encryption can be used in conjunction with in-flight compression. This is
complementary to data-at-rest encryption provided by the Encryption SAN Switch and the
Encryption Blade for B-series SAN Directors.
Adaptive Networking
Adaptive Networking (AN) is an optional 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.

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 license must be installed on the edge (server connected) switch
Adaptive Networking (AN) license must be installed on the edge (server connected) switch

Upgrading existing Switch/Director loaded with Power Pack+ to FOS 7.2.0a or later
Upgrading existing Switch/Director loaded with both Advanced Performance Monitor (APM)
and Fabric Watch (FW) licenses to FOS 7.2.0a or later
Fabric Watch
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.

Product Highlights
Advanced PerformanceThis optional enabling technology helps administrators monitor and watch specific fabric metrics -Monitor
from a SID (Source ID) to a DID (Destination ID) -- so they can fine-tune and scale the fabric more
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.
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 provide a high bandwidth trunk between two switches. Each 16Gb switch needs its own license.
The switch operating system views the trunk as a single, high bandwidth resource (up to 128Gb)
when routing connections between 16Gb switches. Connections are load-balanced across the
individual links, which comprise the logical trunk group.
Integrated Fibre
Channel Extension
Integrated SAN extension over native Fibre Channel provide metro connections up to 100 km
including support for 10 Gbps Fibre Channel over Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing
(DWDM) and dark fiber. This license enables support on the first eight (8) ports of the switch.
SAN Network Advisor
Professional
HP SAN Network Advisor Professional is a server based management application available at nocharge that comes with B-series SAN Switches and includes the following features:
Allows management of a single Fabric OS (FOS) fabric (up to a 1,000 B-Series switch ports)
Performs group switch management beyond the scope of Web Tools
Does not offer management for the DC SAN Backbone Director, the SN8000B Director, or
FICON
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 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 nondisruptive upgrade path is available from SAN Network Advisor Professional to SAN Network
Advisor Enterprise.

Integrated Routing
Integrated Routing is an optional license which provides native Fibre Channel Routing (FCR) on a
per-port basis, rather than limiting routing ports to those on a dedicated routing switch or blade.
Just like traditional FCR, Integrated Routing uses EX_Ports to import/export devices between
fabrics, enabling selective device sharing while maintaining remote fabric isolation. Integrated
Routing provides architecture flexibility to route on a port-by-port basis, enabling increased
scalability and fault isolation.
