view config changes, yet again

This topic has come up a billion times, and yet none of the answers are really that useful.  There's the "cmi_diff" command, which is ridiculous to parse to find out what config changes are pending.  Then there are the manual steps to scp over the config file and do a diff.  OK, a bit tedious but I suppose that works.  It just seems a little shocking that after all these years there is still no single command to do this. Obviously as many times this comes up, it would be a highly desired feature. The "show cm device-group DEV-GROUP incremental-config-sync-cache" never shows anything either.

  • fair enough, probably more useful to "annoy" your F5 sales about this when you are about to do a hardware refresh and are considering a different vendor 😉
