Bigpipe Mappings

Problem this snippet solves:

Have questions about transitioning from bigpipe to tmsh? Here are some helpful hints. For full documentation see the tmsh Reference Guide on AskF5 .

Important things to remember when examining commands in tmsh:

  • show (usually) provides just the statistical information, with configuration parameters present to provide a level of disambiguation.
  • list provides configuration information, but just variations from the default. For example, “list /ltm nat” will only show the “originating-address” information
  • all-properties extends a “list” command to show every configuration option, not just the variations from default.
