Interswitch Link. a Fibre Channel link from the E_Port of one switch to the E_Port of another. See also E_Port, cascade, ISL Trunking.

    Glossary L_Port Loop Port. A node port (NL_Port) or fabric port (FL_Port) that has arbitrated loop capabilities. An L_Port can be in one of two modes: Fabric mode: Connected to a port that is not loop capable, and using fabric protocol. Loop mode: In an arbitrated loop and using loop protocol.

    Glossary Loop Failure Loss of signal within a loop for any period of time, or loss of synchronization for longer than the time-out value. See also error. Loop Initialization The logical procedure used by an L_Port to discover its environment. Can be used to assign AL_PA addresses, detect loop failure, or reset a node.

    Glossary Modem Serial Port The upper serial port on the CP Card of the StorageWorks Core switch. Can be used to connect the CP Card to a modem with a standard 9-pin modem cable. Consists of a DB-9 connector wired as a RS-232 device, and can be connected by serial cable to a DCE device.

    Glossary NL_Port Node Loop Port. A node port that has arbitrated loop capabilities. Used to connect an equipment port to the fabric in a loop configuration through an FL_Port. See also N_Port, Nx_Port. Node Name The unique identifier for a node, communicated during login and port discovery. Node A Fibre Channel device that contains an N_Port or NL_Port.

    Glossary Ordered Set A transmission word that uses 8B/10B mapping and begins with the K28.5 character. Ordered sets occur outside of frames, and include the following items: Frame delimiters: Mark frame boundaries and describe frame contents. Primitive signals: Indicate events. Primitive sequences: Indicate or initiate port states.

    Glossary Point-to-point A Fibre Channel topology that employs direct links between each pair of communicating entities. See also topology. Port Cage The metal casing extending out of the optical port on the switch, and in which the SFP can be inserted.

    Glossary Public Device A device that supports arbitrated loop protocol, can interpret 8-bit addresses, and can log into the fabric. Public Loop An arbitrated loop that includes a participating FL_Port, and may contain both public and private NL_Ports. Public NL_Port An NL_Port that logs into the fabric, can function within either a public or a private loop, and can communicate with either private or public NL_Ports.

    Glossary RAID Redundant Array of Independent Disks. A collection of disk drives that appear as a single volume to the server and are fault tolerant through mirroring or parity checking. See also JBOD. Remote Fabric A fabric that spans across WANs by using protocol translation (a process also known as tunneling) such as Fibre Channel over ATM or Fibre Channel over IP.

    Glossary RSCN Registered State Change Notification. A switch function that allows notification of fabric changes to be sent from the switch to specified nodes. RX_ID Responder Exchange Identifier. A 2-byte field in the frame header used by the responder of the Exchange to identify frames as being part of a particular exchange.

    Glossary Small form factor pluggable. A transceiver used on 2 Gbps switches that replaces the GBIC. Refers to the LC-form factor transceiver. See also GBIC. SID/DID Source identifier/Destination identifier. S_ID is a 3-byte field in the frame header that is used to indicate the address identifier of the N_Port from which the frame was sent.

    1.0625-Gbps link speeds. May also refer to the type of GBIC or SFP. See also LWL. Tachyon A chip developed by Hewlett-Packard, and used in various devices. This chip has FC-0 through FC-2 on one chip. Target A storage device on a Fibre Channel network.

    Glossary Transceiver Device that converts one form of signaling to another for transmission and reception; in fiber optics, it refers to optical and electrical. Transfer State The state in which a port can establish circuits with multiple ports without reentering the arbitration cycle for each circuit.

    Glossary Upper-level Protocol. The protocol that runs on top of Fibre Channel. Typical upper-level protocols are SCSI, IP, HIPPI, and IPI. Unicast The transmission of data from a single source to a single destination. See also broadcast, multicast. user account A login intended for use by the customer to monitor, but not control, switch operation.

    Glossary Zone A set of devices and hosts attached to the same fabric and configured as being in the same zone. Devices and hosts within the same zone have access permission to others in the zone, but are not visible to any outside the zone. See also Zoning.
