I want to monitor 'Fibre Channel' metrics for my Brocade device.

However I do not see 'Fibre Channel' Metric Family and its metrics. Is there any additional steps required ?

I expect the metrics to be available.

According to devicesupport page ( the metrics is listed as certified.

Starting with snmpcollector 3.30, Metric Families discovered by default have been reduced and this is the cause.

Please take a look at the below doc.



snmpcollector 3.30 or later


Please enable metrics in template and apply the template to device so that Metric Family come available.
