Hello all,

Does anyone know what is the command for showing the device uptime for VDX 6470 switch? The firmware version I am currently using is v7.2.x

For Cisco equipment, the command to show the uptime is show version. So what is the equivalent command for VDX 6740 switch?


Many thanks


Best regards,
