Description (partial)

The output of command <I>show fcip counters</I> shows input and output rates as well as some parameters of TCP connections in an FCIP tunnel. E.g. -

<pre>abc-5# show fcip counters

      2 Active TCP connections
        Control connection: Local, Remote
        Data connection: Local, Remote
        2 Attempts for active connections, 1 close of connections

By default, each fcip tunnel consists of 2 tcp connections -- 1 x control and 1 x data. On 10 Gb IP Storage ports, each fcip tunnel may also be configured with 5 tcp connections -- 1 x control and 4 x data. However, the command <I>show fcip counters</I> does not display per-connection, but only cumulative per-tunnel statistics. When 5 tcp connections are configured, since there are multiple data connections, it would be useful to display per-connection statistics.

This enhancement does not affect 1 Gb fcip platforms, such as MDS 9222i switch, or 18+4 and SSN16 linecards (DS-X9304-18K9 and DS-X9316-SSNK9)
