SwitchLightOS (SWL) switches can now report their CPU queue statistics and debug counters. Viewing these statistics can be done using the DANZ Monitoring Fabric (DMF) Controller CLI. The statistics are exported to any connected DMF Analytics Node.

A DMF fabric is made up of groups of switches, known as islands, that are connected over the data plane. There are no data plane connections between switches in different islands. When Push-Per-Filter forwarding is enabled, monitored traffic is forwarded within an island using the VLAN ID associated with a Filter Interface. These VLAN IDs are configurable. Previously, the only recommended configuration was for these VLAN IDs to be globally unique.
