VDX Missing Commands

There are many commands that are crucial for running a network.  Some of these commands are missing from the VDX platform.  Brocade - please consider adding the following commands:

show interface brief

This command is already in the FCX platform and is very handy for quickly looking at the switches for a summary of the interfaces:

SSH@FCX_648_28#show int br

Port    Link    State   Dupl Speed Trunk Tag Pvid Pri MAC            Name

1/1/1   Up      Forward Full 1G    1     Yes N/A  0   748e.f854.ed40

1/1/2   Up      Forward Full 1G    1     Yes N/A  0   748e.f854.ed40

1/1/3   Disable None    None None  None  No  1    0   748e.f854.ed42

1/1/4   Disable None    None None  None  No  1    0   748e.f854.ed43

1/1/5   Disable None    None None  None  No  1    0   748e.f854.ed44

This is the biggest one I've seen so far.  What others do you guys want/need to do your daily jobs?

Re: VDX Missing Commands

Hello,

We have submitted a bunch of RFEs (Request For Enhancement) to our SE because we noticed lack of basic / essential commands.

For instance :

     - The equivalent of the command 'monitor' available for the NetIron platforms,

     - The command 'default' to reset ports configuration on the VDX platforms,

     - The command 'interface range ...' to modify a batch of interfaces at the same time,

List goes on, I am sure we'll find more of them but this is what we discovered so far in the past 6-8 months.

HTH.

Re: VDX Missing Commands

Hi

please can you tell me the command to enable and show the 10Gb optical port?

I have some documents from Brocade site but is very difficult to have general overview about this type of ports.

Thx

Walter

Hi Walter,

I believe the following from the NOS v3.0.1 Command Reference will help you.

show interface (gives lots of details):

show ip interface (has a brief operand which can be helpful):
