Viewing network details

The Network page in the IBM Storage Fusion user interface provides information about switches, VLANs, and links in the system.

The Infrastructure > Network page displays Switches, VLAN, and Links in three tab pages. Click each tab to view the respective details in a table format. Use the Search field to filter and find records. The settings icon helps you to customize the column headings of these tables. Decide the number of records per page by using the Items per page drop-down list of the table. You can traverse to the previous or next page views. Select a number from the drop-down list of the page numbers to jump to a specific page view.
