  • Cisco NX-OS is very simple to use and user friendly CLI
  • NX-OS has a modular config so easy to configure.
  • NX-OS comes up with copp policy where we can define most of our system level ontrols instead of defining separate ACLs
  • Memory leak issue is one of the major issues that need to be solved.
  • Burst traffic handling needs improvement.
  • The buffer size is too small and module-level issues will be repetitive.

  • Software compatibility
  • Virtual PortChannel
  • Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)
  • Port profiles
  • Autolearn feature for network security configuration - it is not learning as expected and performance is poor.
  • Etheranalyzer - WireShark is more user friendly.
  • Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP) - it's too complex to set up.
