Synopsis: A new era of computing began when Fibre Channel revolutionized the storage world by introducing SANs (Storage Area Networks). Organizations embraced Fibre Channel, and in the years since, SANs have become a multi-billion dollar industry.

You run out of fingers trying to count up the number of standards for Fibre Channel, and the information is not correlated well between them. FCBR-2 is designed to bridge the gap for those involved with Fibre Channel, because the 2nd Edition is a compact ready-reference to:

FCP SCSI-3 Protocol FC-SW Switch Fabric FC-DA Device Attach FC-MI Methodologies for Interconnects FC-AL Arbitrated Loop FC-FS Framing and Signaling FC-LS Link Services FC-2 Protocol FC-1 8B/10B Encoding, including a complete set of translation tables for FC-0 Connectors, Cables and Transceivers.

Switched fabrics have not only boosted the performance of storage systems across enterprises, they have provided a means to control the use and disposition of data at the same time. Had it not been for the Storage Area Networks (SANs) introduced by Fibre Channel, most storage would still be directly attached and only available to local users.

The 2nd Edition builds on the base established by the Fibre Channel Bench Reference, with almost all of the expanded content oriented to the switched fabric, which dominates installations. Information on the latest connectors and performance characteristics is also provided.

The compact size makes the 2nd Edition a convenient companion in a briefcase, and it is spiral bound to lay flat on a desk or a lab bench. Tabs separate the major sections so you can turn straight to the subject you want, and like the cover, they are mylar reinforced.

Guidelines

Those of you who are familiar with the way the standards committee, INCITS T11, restructured the FC-PH document into FC-PI and FC-FS will find that this edition of the Fibre Channel Bench Reference retains ready access to all the information you need to follow the goings on at the FC-1, FC-2, and FC-4 levels in SCSI protocol products.

This Fibre Channel Bench Reference edition has reduced the coverage of the FC-0 level because the options are getting dramatically complex to the point where you really must have the assistance of an automated analyzer to sort things out for you.

Why waste pages explaining things that computers can do for you automatically? Besides, the FC-PI standard covers all that as well as we can.

The biggest change in Fibre Channel since the last Fibre Channel Bench Reference edition has been the rise of standards for switch-to-switch communications in fabrics.

The complexity of transactions between switches also has grown tremendously. These pages cover the major SW_ILSs (Switch Internal Link Services) sent between switches.

If you are debugging a SCSI Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP) application, a critical companion to this bench reference is the SCSI Bench Reference.
