    Sounds very interesting this tool that you show us.
    It haven’t I used yet but now I appear a doubt about other similar tool from EMC called CloudIQ. It seems implemented it for monitoring brocade switches (b series) too.
    What is your opinión about this tool (more focused like SaaS)?
    About info that provide us I understand it’ll be similar with values like performance, bootleneck issues, predictable info….
    Thanks.
