FEC (Forward Error Correction) Ports

Note: Physical Ports - Fec Ports works with Trident 4 platforms only.

There are features and functions used in Arista NetVisor UNUM and Insight Analytics that are common throughout the user interface (UI). Please refer to the Common Functions section for more information on the use of these functions and features.

Forward Error Correction (FEC) or channel coding is an error correction technique that helps detect and correct a limited number of errors in transmitted data without re-transmission. In this method, the sender sends a redundant Error Correcting Code (ECC) and the data frames using a fixed, higher forward channel bandwidth.

Selecting Manager → Services → Fec Ports displays the Fec Ports dashboard.

Select the applicable Fabric from the left-hand navigation bar and the dashboard updates showing all Fec Ports configurations from all switches within the Fabric

Note: If no entries exist a "No Data Exists" message is displayed. You must first configure an entry on a switch. Prerequisite settings and configuration may be required.

This feature table displays data based on the fabric's default Collector Switch. If no data displays in the dashboard, either select a switch from the Left-hand Navigation (LHN) pane or perform a Search by selecting an FRG (Fabric Resource Group) and a specific Attribute from the drop-down lists, as required.
