This plugin checks sensors (psu, temperature, fans et al) and overall health of SAN switches that understand the Fibre Alliance MIB. There is a long list of companies behind that MIB; I have tested the script with switches from Brocade and Qlogic.

"Temperature Status" = "Normal"
"Temperature Sensor 1 Value" = "27 degrees C"

Like a charm!
For 249824E Express IBM System Storage SAN24B
(what is Brocade 300 SAN switch)

Plugin works fine out of the box on EMC Brocade 5300, but it would be nice to get some performance data out of it so we can get some graphs. Also for serial number I get 'None'. I'll see if I can find the oid for it.

Great plugin. Works great with my HP StoragWorks MSA 2324fc SAN and HP FiberChannel switches.
