I've asked Broadcom directly, but being as though I don't have an intent to buy tens of thousands of chips (or any at all), I don't expect I'll hear back. I was hoping someone here would have some insight. 

Do any of you know what functionality is available on those chips? That's the chip that powers the Ubiquiti 10G switches and I figured I would limit my most aggressive feature requests to things they can actually deliver with the platform as is. 

Other than things you just assume a managed switch has like 802.1p and 802.1q, it mentions an advanced ContentAware™ Engine (which means?), IEEE1588 (sync over Ethernet), 802.1ag (OAM stuff), "Enhanced DoS attack statistics gathering" (which means?), "IPv4/IPv6 L3 packet classification" (which means?), etc. 

I'm sure there's an array of things to ask about, but MLAG and S-Flow are at the top of my list at the moment.
