Vicom has introduced FCmeter Plus, a new Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter with Vmeter built in. What's sexy about QoS management for Xsan built into an 8 Gigabit Fibre Channel connection? Vmeter can limit workstation I/O for some clients, reserving bandwidth for others. Vmeter also gives us administrators logging and troubleshooting options with greater detail than we would have simply looking at our switches and logs for clients.
Now, by unloading the work that Vmeter was doing onto a card, the whole process is a little more streamlined. If you haven't checked it out yet, look at http://www.vicom.com/FCmeter-Plus.php.
