I cannot find any.

Monitoring page was a little bit more of a surprize.

I wasn’t expecting to see a full port monitoring console in here.  This is especially handy if your working in an enviroment where you may have to find out what is causing an uplink port to be constricted.  You can see exactly where the traffic is coming from, down to the port level.

Maintenance tab here shows files.  It appears that it keeps full logs on everything.

Troubleshooting, I was expecting to see links to their website,  but it actually looks like you can run some basic commands from it, and packet captures.  1 word comes to mind.  WOW.  Ping, Traceroute,  eh,  But to have full packet capture ON the switch itself.  Thats very cool.  WAY easier to troubleshoot when you have the tools that allow you to do it easier.

    What I’d like to see is a comparison of this unit, and others, against a home built router/switch using pfsense.

    We can definitely do that. However, I want to mention that this isn’t a home built switch. This is a enterprise level switch. There are things that this will just do better. Most home built stuff will have a very small backplane 2Gbit-8Gbit max, while this will do over 56Gbit/sec on the back plane. My follow up review will show what this thing will do 24/7 365. We’ve just put this switch into production 🙂

    You can certainly compare x86 home-built router with enterprise-level performance and features (e.g. Vyatta) to big-name routers that does the same thing. But this is a switch; there are no home-built possibilities here.

      Yeah. While this will do some static routing for you, it shouldn’t be used as a router. This should be used in conjunction with a router.
