The HP Intelligent Infrastructure Analyzer Software (IIAS) is an online monitoring and diagnostic solution intended to manage the physical layer of a Storage Area Network (SAN) consisting of HP B-series and/or H-series Fiber Channel switches and directors. It uses industry-standard protocols (such as SNMP, SMI-S, Telnet) to monitor the physical layer across the SAN and to diagnose changes/events in Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) transceiver states/characteristics. It also presents the SAN topology, inventory and diagnostic information to the user in real-time. It is targeted at customers who have HP storage networking hardware in their SAN.

The product can be used to detect potential failures in the SAN for root cause analysis and failure impact assessment and is
