Brocade FibreChannel This is gmond python module that allows SNMP polling of Fibrechannel switches to get interface packet and throughput metrics.

  • It works for Brocade FC switches, and probably for any other SNMP enabled switch.
  • It requires pysnmp (available in debian repositorys)
  • Handles polling multiple switches from a single gmond.
  • Spoofs the switch hostname, so each switch shows up separately in ganglia


  • python pysnmp


  • Save the fibrechannel.pyconf into directory and update the switch(s) name & IP's
  • Save the into your ganglia python module dir eg: /usr/lib/ganglia/python_modules
  • Update SNMP community / ports if necessary

If you're handling a large number of metrics, you may wish to set your sysctl settings as below:

net.core.rmem_max=104857600 net.core.rmem_default=104857600 vm.dirty_ratio=100 vm.dirty_background_ratio=100 vm.dirty_expire_centisecs=720000
