fibre channel generic services (FC-GS)

Fibre Channel

Generic Services (FC-GS) is an ANSI standard in which various Fibre Channel services are specified. For example, the

name server, the management server, the time


and others.

The development of these Generic Services was initially directed towards the Fibre Channel environment and its administration and management and included

, among other things, adirectory service /DS), a transport service

and time-related services. In the following generation, further services and extensions for FC management were specified. This standard

is called FC-GS-2 and was published in 1998, followed by many more additions and services, numbered sequentially as FC-GS-3, FC-GS-4 and FC-GS-5, which was published in 2003.
