With IPHost Network Monitor you can run simple snmp requests against a Cisco device in your network.


Cisco Fibre Channel Ping Entry

A ping request entry. A management station wishing to create an entry should generate a pseudo-random number to be used as an index into this table and create an instance of the fcPingRowStatus object. After that, the management station should set the corresponding instance of fcPingAddress object with the address of the destination that should be pinged and fcPingVsanIndex with the desired VSAN number. Once the appropriate instance of all the configuration objects have been created, either by an explicit SNMP set request or by default, the row status should be set to active to initiate the ping sequence. Note that this entire procedure may be initiated via a single set request which specifies a row status of createAndGo as well as specifies valid values for the non-defaulted configuration objects. Once the ping sequence has been initiated it can be stopped by setting the corresponding instance of fcPingRowStatus to 'destroy'. The results of the ping operation are made available in the fcPingStats table. For a ping entry uniquely identified by fcPingIndex, an entry will be created in the fcPingStats table automatically by the agent. Once the ping sequence completes, the management station should retrieve the statistics of interest from the fcPingStats table and delete the entry from the fcPingTable. The corresponding entry in the fcPingStats table shall be deleted automatically by the agent. In order to prevent old entries from clogging the table, entries will be aged out, but an entry will never be deleted within fcPingAgeInterval milliseconds of completing. If the management station wishes to repeat the ping sequence to a particular destination, then it will need to set the corresponding instance of fcPingAdminStatus to 'enable' again.
