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?

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.

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.

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):
show media interface (gives just the SFP information):
interface (use to configure the interfaces):
