CISCO-NPORT-VIRTUALIZATION-MIB

The MIB module for the management of N_port
        Virtualization or NPV within the framework of Cisco's 
        N_port virtualization (NPV) Architecture.
        
        N_Port virtualization reduces the number of Fibre 
        Channel domain IDs in SANs. Switches operating in the 
        NPV mode do not join a fabric; rather, they pass traffic 
        between NPV core switch links and end-devices, which 
        eliminates the domain IDs for these edge switches.
        
        Glossary of terms Used in this MIB:
        ----------------------------------
        
        SAN                - Storage Area Network
        
        VSAN               - Virtual Storage Area Network,
                             Similar to a VLAN.
        
        NPV                - N Port Virtualization, a technique
                             using which the number of domain IDs
                             in fibre channel fabric can be reduced,
                             leading to easier management. 
                             When operating in this mode, a fibre 
                             channel switch (typically, 
                             a fabric/blade switch)
                             acts as a HBA with respect to the 
                             fibre channel fabric and as a switch 
                             with respect to the connected devices.
        
        NPV Device         - A fibre channel switch working in NPV
                             special mode.
        
        NPV Core Switch    - A fibre channel edge switch connected to 
                             one or more NPV devices.
        
        Server             - Host connected to the NPV device.
                             Typically, a Blade Server connected to 
                             Blade switch in NPV mode in a Blade 
                             Chassis.
        
        Server Interface   - Interface on the NPV Device that connects
                             to end devices(hosts/disks). Also, known
                             as F-port, as it operates in F port mode.
        
        External Interface - Interface on the NPV Device that 
                             connects to the NPV Core Switch.
                             Also known as NP-port as it operates
                             in NP port mode.
        
        Traffic Map        - Traffic map is a way to restrict traffic 
                             flow from an interface to only a set of 
                             interfaces. In NPV device, traffic map
                             can be used to present a server interface
                             to the fibre channel fabric only through
                             one of the valid external interfaces
                             specified in the set of interfaces.
