Deliver emfc_power as command in AIX for SAN connection troubleshooting
One of the first steps when working with IBM is (after snap´s) is to run the command emfc_power to verify TX/RX/ levels. This command could be useful as a standard command also including 25/10Gbs LAN power status check, as maybe event driven alerts or possible to run from just ansible to have an overview (and acionplan) to share with storage team which (quite often) seems to miss the values getting lower and then AIX is showing errors.
