We use a lot of ICX 7xxx series switches. We currently run SPS08090 firmware. I am wondering if Brocade switches have any kind of Linux command support similar to Cisco switches such as grep or other commands. At this time I am mainly interested in the functionality grep offers over include/exclude, but other commands linux offers are something I am looking more into. I am also interested to see if the switches can run scripts/functions like the linux options on a cisco switch can do.
There is not much outside of include/exclude within the CLI itself. I guess it depends on what you are trying to do. I am not familiar with all the Cisco functions, so tough for me to comment there. I would advise checking with your sales team and they could also formally submit any Requests For Enhancements (RFEs) on your behalf to be considered for future releases.

Thank you @BenBeck. I prefer not to ask our sales team for technical advice though. Are you aware of any additional command options on brocades? From what I read, ICX switches run based off Linux OS. So on Ciscos, you have the ability to enable some basic Linux command functionality since they also run based off Linux OS. I am just wondering if Brocades have this same option. Similar to how there are hidden dm/debug commands, is there something hidden for Linux command support? Please let me know if this question isn't making sense.
