The following information and controls are available at Data Protection > NDMP > Ports.

Ports
This table lists the ports on each Backup Accelerator node and shows how the ports interact with the connected NDMP backup devices.
LNN
Specifies the logical node number of the Backup Accelerator node.
Port
Specifies the name of the Backup Accelerator node and the port number.
Topology
Specifies the type of Fibre Channel topology that the port is configured to support.
Point to Point
Specifies a single backup device or Fibre Channel switch that is directly connected to the port.
Loop
Specifies multiple backup devices that are connected to a single port in a circular formation.
Auto
Automatically detects the topology of the connected device. This is a recommended setting and is required if you are using a switched-fabric topology.
WWNN
Specifies the world wide node name (WWNN) of the port. This name is the same for each port on a given node.
WWPN
Specifies the world wide port name (WWPN) of the port. This name is unique to the port.
Rate
Specifies the rate at which data is sent through the port. The rate can be set to 1 Gb/s, 2 Gb/s, 4 Gb/s, 8 Gb/s, and Auto. The 8 Gb/s setting is available only for A100 nodes. If set to Auto, OneFS automatically negotiates with the DMA to determine the rate. Auto is the recommended setting.
Actions
Enable or disable a port.
