managment control is one of those areas that vendors tend towards not

That being said, I've heard but not seen that some of the proprietary
binary utilities that various vendors make might run somehow under
binary emulation (e.g. linux or freebsd emulation) or similar.
YMMV as they say - this is based on secondhand words & might not even
be based on dragonfly related hearsay.
Others on the list might / probably have more experiences they can chime
