Also known as 'fibrechannel aspherical monochromousity' (the Register).
A problem in the physical layer of the fibre channel media (force field). The connectors become Amoeba-shaped and any signals on optical links go black-and-white, causing total loss of connectivity.
The effect has not been seen in the field yet (except the above-mentioned reference) - reports with photos welcome.
