Introduction
Overview
Node Manager is a GUI-based interface that enables network administrators to manage an individual
Force10 device. The Node Manager features include:
•
•
•
•
•
An intuitive Java interface
Fast access to the device via Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and Telnet
Performance monitoring functions
Support for all Force10 switches (with the possible exception of newly released models), including
C-Series, E-Series, and S-Series
Line card support
Node Manager is available both as a standalone application and as a standard component of Force10
Management System (FTMS). When used as a standalone application, you use the Node Manager launch
screen to point to the management IP address of a particular Force10 switch. While you can only point
Node Manager at one switch per session, you can point Node Manager at a different switch each session.
When used as a component of FTMS, the role of Node Manager is transparent. FTMS relies on SNMP
discovery, so you do not need to identify a particular management IP address for Node Manager to
function within FTMS.
Note that you can run FTMS and a standalone Node Manager from the same computer. So, for example, if
your current need is only to manage a particular switch and does not include having a global network view,
you could simply use Node Manager.

Node Manager Installation
Node Manager Installation
Ideally, you would install another copy of Node Manager on a separate PC for each chassis that you want
to manage through Node Manager. However, you can use one installation of Node Manager to manage
multiple switches as long as you close and relaunch Node Manager each time you want to manage a
different switch.
You identify the managed chassis to Node Manager through the management IP address assigned to that
chassis (see C-Series and E-Series Setup on page 25 and S-Series Setup on page 26).
Some screenshots below are for earlier Node Manager versions, but they pertain to the current version.
Note: You only need to install Node Manager separately if you did not previously install Force10
Management System (FTMS). The FTMS installation installs Node Manager automatically.
Step

Installation
C-Series and E-Series Setup
C-Series and E-Series Setup
To complete the installation, Node Manager requires that you use the FTOS CLI from the C-Series or
E-Series switch to perform two activities for each managed chassis.
Configuring SNMP
Node Manager communicates to each chassis by means of SNMP. This requires that you define an SNMP
community string.
Command Syntax
Command Mode
Usage
snmp-server community
community-string {ro}
CONFIGURATION
Enter the community string you wish to use for
Node Manager with the addition of a read-only
(ro) parameter. Force10 suggests that you use
the same community string for all of your
chassis. If you have previously entered a string
for another SNMP manager and agent, use the
existing string.
Defining a Virtual IP Address
To maintain the IP connection between Node Manager and a chassis in the event of an RPM failover,
Force10 Networks suggests you create a virtual IP address instead of using the IP addresses of the
management interfaces:
Command Syntax
Command Mode
Usage
virtual ip ip-address
CONFIGURATION
Establishes a virtual IP address for a chassis.
Maintains all primary IP connectivity functions,
including SNMP, in the event of a failover. For
details, see the Management Interface section
of the FTOS Configuration Guide.
For more on C-Series and E-Series management, see Managing the S-Series on page 85.
Force10 Node Manager Guide, version 1.5.0
25
S-Series Setup
S-Series Setup
To complete the installation, use SFTOS to configure the management connection on each S-Series
chassis that you want to manage from Node Manager.
Configuring SNMP
Node Manager communicates to each chassis by means of SNMP. This requires that you define an SNMP
community string.
Command Syntax
Command Mode
Usage
snmp-server community name
Global Config
Enter the community string you wish to use for
Node Manager. Force10 suggests that you
use the same community string for all chassis.
If you have previously entered a string for
another SNMP manager and agent, use the
existing string.
Defining the S-Series Management IP Address
Follow the instructions in the Management chapter of the SFTOS Configuration Guide on configuring the
management IP address of an S-Series chassis for accessing it through an IP connection (such as through
Telnet). Briefly:
Command Syntax
Command Mode
Usage
interface managementethernet
Global Config
Invoke the (Config-if-ma)# prompt.
ip address ipaddr subnetmask
(Config-if-ma)# prompt
Set the IP address and subnet mask of the
management interface.
management route default gateway
Global Config
Set the IP gateway of the management
interface.
Note: If you are managing an S50 running SFTOS 2.2 or earlier, use the network parms
command (Global Config mode) to set the management IP address, subnet mask, and default
gateway.

Labels, Status Colors, and Indicator LEDs
Force10 uses labels, status colors, and simulations of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) in Node Manager to
communicate information about a chassis and how it is functioning.
Labels
Node Manager uses labels extensively to identify interface components. These labels appear in the same
location on the interface as they do on the actual component in the chassis. See Figure 11 for an example
of the labels on a component:
Figure 11 Labeling Example
Status Colors and Indicator LEDs
The Node Manager uses the same status colors as used by the E-Series to communicate the operational
status of each component. The general meaning of each status color appears in Table 4. For more
information about these colors, please see Appendix B, Alarms, on page 117.
Table 4 Node Manager Colors and their Meaning

Managing the C-Series
This chapter has one section — Navigating the C300 Chassis on page 36.
You can connect Node Manager to all types of Force10 Networks switches — C-Series, E-Series, and
S-Series. Because the C-Series C300 switch uses a subset of the same FTOS command set used by the
E-Series, this chapter simply presents the C300 icon that displays when you access a C300 through Node
Manager. For details on monitoring and configuring the C300 switch, you can use the directions in the
E-Series chapter; see Chapter 6, Managing the S-Series, on page 85.

Managing the E-Series
Whichever of the options you select, the Performance Current Data Viewer window opens (Figure 21 on
page 44). The window displays an empty bar chart at first, but then begins to display data based upon the
default settings for the selected report. You can select an alternate chart type from the Chart Options
section at the bottom of the window. Besides Bar Chart, you can select Line Chart or XY Line Chart.
Note: The window is divided into three panes. To give more room to the graph, click the triangular
down button located at the top left of one of the two lower panes. You can then expand the lower
panes with the triangular up button.
Below the chart is a table that reports the data collected at each data collection point in the collection
interval. You can modify the collection interval in the Poll Interval field (specified in seconds), which is
near the bottom of the window.
For chart input, you can select from the following parameters, which are in the bottom pane of the window:
•

Average: The data collected over the specified time period is added together, and the number of
sampling period values is divided by the added value. The sampling period value is used as the poll
interval for current monitoring. 15 minutes is used for history monitoring.
Nth Percentile: This function needs two parameters: time period (enter a value in seconds in the
Duration field) and percentile value (enter in the Percentile field). When this function is applied, the
data plotted is the percentile value of the number of samples collected over the specified time period.
Max Nth Percentile: This function is similar to Nth Percentile, but the sample values collected over the
specified time period are sorted in descending order, and the given Nth percentile value is calculated.
Min Nth Percentile: This function is similar to Nth Percentile, but the sample values collected over the
specified time period are sorted in ascending order, and the given nth percentile value is calculated.
Cumulative Data: The data plotted in the graph is the data value at any nth interval, and is the sum of
the data values collected in the previous n – 1 intervals.
Max Value in Set: The maximum value of the data collected over the specified time period is plotted in
the graph.
Min Value in Set: The minimum value of the data collected over the specified time period is plotted in
the graph.
None: The raw data collected from the node is plotted as such.
To start collecting data with a new parameter, click Apply. You can start and stop polling with the Start
Polling/Stop Polling button, which is near the bottom of the window (When polling starts, the Stop Polling
button replaces the Start Polling button.)

Managing E-Series Port Channels
You can use Node Manager to both add and remove port channels. A port channel is Force10’s method of
grouping multiple physical interfaces into a single logical interface. In IEEE 802.3ad, these are referred to
as a Link Aggregation Group (LAG).
Force10 port channels provide redundancy by enabling you to aggregate up to 16 physical interfaces of
the same interface type and speed interfaces into one logical interface. This enables the E-Series to have
one physical interface carry the traffic of another if the former goes down in a port channel. You can
configure up to 32 port channels per chassis.
You can perform the following port channel management activities in Node Manager:

stack. Also, the S50 model stacks only with the same model. All other models — S50V, S25P, S50N, etc.
— can coexist in the same stack.
The master switch, called the management unit, manages the stack. For details on the algorithm that
determines which is the management unit, see the Stacking chapter in the SFTOS Configuration Guide.
Each switch has a unique switch ID/unit number that the management unit uses to identify it as a stack
member, just as if it were a numbered line card in a large switch. Likewise, Node Manager identifies ports
partly by their switch ID. For example, port 2/0/30 identifies port 30 in member unit 2 (SFTOS uses the
middle number to identify slot numbers, but does not use it for the S50.)
S50 switches can be pre-provisioned. You can logically add, delete, or renumber a member unit in Node
Manager. For stacking details not included in this section, see the stacking chapters in the SFTOS CLI and
configuration guides, which are on the CD-ROM that accompanies the S50.

Adding S-Series Switches to a Stack
You can use Node Manager to pre-configure the management unit of an S-Series stack with a new stack
member. Unassigned members are those that only exist in the software but do not yet exist physically in
the stack.
To add a member switch in Node Manager:
Step

Step
Task
2
In the pop-up menu, click Add member. If you have not previously logged into the CLI, Node
Manager prompts you to do so. After you have logged in, Node Manager displays this dialog box:

This dialog box is the equivalent of the member command. Use the Unit list to select the logical
location in the stack where you want to add the unit. Choose a different member number if you wish
to have the unit appear in a different part of the stack other than the selected one.
4
Use the Switch Index list to select the switch index value that you want to assign the new unit.
Switch index is the index of the switch reported by show supported switch type. After you make
your selections and click OK, Node Manager displays a grayed-out graphic representing the unit in
the designated location in the stack:

Managing S-Series Port Channels
You can use Node Manager to add and remove port channels. A port channel is a method of grouping
multiple physical interfaces into a single logical interface. In IEEE 802.3ad, a port channel is referred to as
a Link Aggregation Group (LAG).
Port channels provide redundancy by enabling you to aggregate up to eight physical interfaces of the
same interface type and speed interfaces into one logical interface. This enables the S50 to have one
physical interface carry the traffic of another if the former goes down in a port channel. You can configure
up to 32 port channels per switch.

Alarms
Overview
Force10 Node Manager uses simulations of LEDs to indicate major and minor alarms for these conditions:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
fan tray status
power supply status
RPM status
high temperature on RPMs
line card status
high temperature on line cards
SFM status
high temperature on SFMs
A major alarm is any fault that would render the chassis non-functional.
A minor alarm is any fault that threatens the operation of the chassis.
You also can configure audible alarms on the chassis itself and configure the chassis to send an SNMP
trap. For more information about these features, please see the FTOS Command Line Interface
Reference.
Alarm Logging and Multiple Alarm Occurrences
The E-Series logs alarms for each occurrence, but it may not send an event log for multiple occurrences.
For example, whenever a module exceeds the shutdown threshold, the module shuts down. If more than
one module exceeds the warning or high temperature thresholds within a five-minute period, the system
generates one event for all effected modules, but logs alarms for each occurrence. If the modules
temperature falls to 5° lower than the warning threshold temperature, the system clears the alarm and an
SNMP trap.
