Cisco Enhanced Benes fabric MIB module.
This MIB module is used for managing/tracking the Ehanced
Benes Fabric entities and/or fabric related configuration,
state and statistics information.
The fabric entities relationship is shown as follows:
Acronyms and terms:
RP - Routing processor.
DRP - Distributed Route Processor.
LC - Line card.
SFE - switch fabric element.
SFE port - the port of SFE contains a transmitter and/or
receiver to transmit and/or receive data from
fabric link - Fabric link.
+-+ single fabric link +-+
A fabric link contains a transmitter T and receiver R.
The transmitter T is in the source SFE port of the fabric
link and the receiver R is in the destination SFE port
of the fabric link.
OIM - Optical Interface Module.
fabric bundle - Fabric bundle is a cable that contains one
or more fabric links for transferring
data between fabric cards.
+-+ 1..N fabric links +-+
A fabric bundle cable contains 1 to N fabric links.
One end of the fabric bundle cable is plugged into the fabric bundle
port A of fabric card in Line card rack and the other
end is plugged into the fabric bundle port B on a OIM
of fabric rack for the high speed data transfer between fabric
bundle port A and B.
ingressq - a switch fabric element which queues/segments
packets into cells and sends them into fabric.
fabricq - a switch fabric element which resequences and
reassembles cells from fabric into packets and
forwarding them to the egress interface related
fabric plane - Fabric plane is a path from a set of
ingressqs in a RP/DRP or LC card to a set of fabricqs
in other RP/DRP or LC cards for transferring data
between RP, DRP, and LC cards.
