A significant amount of errors are found in the event log for one of the ATTO bridges
Example:
INFO FC TM Cmd Rcvd: Abort Task Set to LUN:27 on FC Port 1
 
Error counters on the ATTO bridge are increasing
Example:
; Fibre Channel Error Counts
; Port | Link Failures | Sync Loss | Signal Loss | Invalid Tx | Invalid CRC
