You can find the TMSH Reference Guide on the F5 support site.


The link is for v11.2, but you should be able to find guides for other versions as well.
on ltm:
b virtual show
b pool show
Keep in mind that the bigpipe commands will not work in v11, so I would recommend using the tmsh equivalent.

tmsh show ltm virtual
tmsh show ltm pool

Here is the command line guide: http://support.f5.com/content/kb/en-us/products/big-ip_ltm/manuals/product/CLI_guide_943/_jcr_content/pdfAttach/download/file.res/BIG-IP_Command_Line_Interface_Guide.pdf
So Eric bigpipe utility is not anymore used in LTM/ GTM v11 . My F5's are on 10v . So I can use both tmsh & bigpipe .Which is better to use . i have gone through guide little bit of CLI . Do we need to go in shell of bigpipe & tmsh to execute commands.

Below commands be excecuted from direct login no need to go into tmsh shell like in bigpipe earlier .Thanks
tmsh show ltm virtual
tmsh show ltm pool

Learn tmsh even though you are on 10.x, you'll upgrade eventually and having the cli tool already in your tool belt will be helpful.
