MIB module to provide information about the SanTap
SanTap is a fibre channel switch based capability that
provides a reliable copy of the data flowing between
a set of one or more initiators and a set of one or
more targets connected to the fabric.
Adminstrator must configure the switch to create the
Control Virtual Target (CVT) for the SanTap service.
CVTs are used to implement the control path which process
all SanTap service requests sent out by an appliance.
Prior to requesting for SanTap service the appliance
contacts the CVT, specifies the initiator and the target
for replicating the data flowing between them.
This MIB provides an interface to configure the CVT for
the SanTap service on the fibre channel switch modules.
Glossary of terms used in this MIB:
Fabric - The set of physically connected fibre channel
VSAN - Virtual Storage Area Network, similar to a
Virtual Fabric as defined by T11.
WWN - World Wide Name. Mechanism of uniquely
identifying the devices in Fibre Channel
Appliance - It is a storage target, which can
requests the SanTap service for the reliable
copy of the data flowing between a specific
host initiator and a target.
CVT - Control Virtual Target. It is a logical target
port that resides on the switch and is used
for the purpose of communicating control traffic
from an appliance.
DVT - Data Virtual Target. It is a logical target port
that resides on the switch and is used to intercept
traffic meant for a real target.
