vSphere 5.5 esxcli namespace updates

This is your 10,000 ft view of the updates to the vsphere 5.5 esxcli.  I do plan to dive in and explore the new additions in more detail at a later date.  This round I just want to provide a taste of what is new.  

For a second time in a row, and much to my delight :D, we see an emphasis on network! (esxcli 5.0 to 5.1 provided a similar treat).  There are changes aligning with some of the new features introduced in vsphere 5.5.  There’s also a significant namespace addition for VSAN.  Duncan Epping provides a great introduction to VSAN here.  Exciting times indeed.  

Without further delay…

Counts of esxcli 5.5 updates

  new commands:  74
      by namespace
      device (2)  graphics (2)  network (26)  sched (1)  storage (11)  system (8) vsan (23) 

  commands removed: 2  (vxlan network mapping replaced with arp/mac/mtep output)
  commands modified: 3  (LACP command cleanup)
  new namespaces: 3 (device, graphics, vsan)


For those who aren’t satisfied with counts, here’s the full delta of 5.1 and 5.5 below.  Enjoy!
