Install Cisco Fabric Manager Server on a computer that you want to provide centralized MDS management services and performance monitoring. SNMP operations are used to efficiently collect fabric information.
Each computer configured as a Cisco Fabric Manager Server can monitor multiple Fiber Channel SAN fabrics. The Cisco Fabric Manager clients can connect directly to an MDS switch in fabrics that are not monitored by a Cisco Fabric Manager Server, which ensures you can manage any of your MDS devices from a single console.
