        I used to work on the fboss project when I was at Facebook. FBOSS runs on an internal, NDA protected version of this, but the GitHub binary dumps used to be missing a huge amount of configurability and features. A quick skim indicates that’s still the case.

        My interpretation is that it’s there to enable demoware, and if you want to do anything serious, you need to talk to Broadcom to get NDAs signed.
