It should be simpler. There are still some things that can be simpler in the Brocade switches.

There are other solutions that are free and that enable you to check the access of the ports and the IU stats also. In this solution there isn't one for the switch that allows for checking the stats, the health of the ports and all the data that exist in the switch. It's just like CLI commands. This solution doesn't have a graphical interface and that's an issue. As mentioned, a graphical interface should be included in any new release - it would increase options.
