Brocade Switch: Interface Uptime Counter

One thing I like about the Brocade interface command is that it shows the uptime.  Very nice feature for sure.  You need this sometimes in troubleshooting.  The port below has been up for 11 seconds.

  1. This applies to devices running 8.x code and above.

  2. I have spoken to our Brocade SE and the current recommended code base for the ICX series is ICX64R08030c and ICX64S08030c. I was told this has been a big roll-up of fixes for some various quirks and problems in the earlier 8.x code. I have been running it and it seems very stable.
