Sun Ethernet Fabric Operating System. A full-featured fabric and switch management software package for configuring and monitoring the switches network infrastructure.
System event log. The switch includes a number of replaceable component sensors that generate entries in the SEL when the sensor crosses a threshold. Many of these readings are used to adjust the fan speeds and perform other actions, such as illuminatiing LEDs and powering off the switch.
Small form-factor, pluggable. A transceiver module specification for several physical layer technologies. In this document, SFP+ refers to Gigabit Ethernet, or 10GE, modules.
Short range. A short range SFP+ optical tranceiver module.
Top of rack. The Sun Network 10GbE Switch 72p is a TOR switch.
