I want to monitor 'Fibre Channel' metrics for my Brocade device.

However I do not see 'Fibre Channel' Metric Family and its metrics. Is there any additional steps required ?

I expect the metrics to be available.

According to devicesupport page (http://devicesupport.ca.com) the metrics is listed as certified.

In this example, after you enable Fibre Channel Metric via template, the below is added to snmpcollector.cfg

and the list of Metric Family discovered by default in this probe instance is expanded as well.
