Mellanox and bad CLI choices

Greg Ferro of EtherealMind comments:

I’ve been working on Mellanox S-Series switches lately in a largish network with several hundred 10GbE server ports.

A great product can be ruined by an arcane, unintelligible interface. Read of for Greg’s assessment of Mellanox and their CLI.
