D81S – simple SAN visualisation tool

D81S – my SAN visualisation tool, which I develop to build a full map of a Fibre Channel Storage Area Network by tracing all paths from HBAs to storage logical devices. D81S scans SAN switches and storage systems to create a database of all volumes which are accessible by hosts and the same LUNs provided by storage systems.

Two years ago I was working on it with passion, but later I have lost my accesses to most parts of that storage environment. So I’m unable to continue my work on it, so I decided to to share the source.

If anybody is interested in it, I can help to install it on his environment, test or even continue to develop it.

      Hi, Abdul! You must have Linux, Python 3 with a couple of addition modules and Mysql database to run d81s. Right now, I’m uploading a VirtualBox machine image with d81s pre-installed. It was prepared some time ago for testing purposes. I’ll add a link to the d81s project page (https://mezzantrop.wordpress.com/portfolio/d81s) soon, so you can download it, import and try to run.

      It is Python 3 code which is quite different to Powershell 🙂
