What is Brocade Support Link (BSL)?

Brocade Support Link enables customers to securely and automatically transmit configuration and performance information from their SAN environment to Brocade for performance analysis and configuration validation.

Switch/Fabric Data, Inventory and Performance Reports: High level summary reports and the underlying data from the fabric that is used to generate the BPA reports. Enables customers to sort data and create custom reports.

Automated Case Creation: Automatically create a support case in Brocade’s case management tool and notify the Brocade support engineers of critical events immediately. (Premier customers only)
