enable clipaging

enable clipaging


Enables the pause mechanism and does not allow the display to print continuously to the screen.

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or variables.



Usage Guidelines

The command line interface (CLI) is designed for use in a VT100 environment.

Most show command output will pause when the display reaches the end of a page.

To view the status of CLI paging on the switch, use the show management command. The show management command displays information about the switch including the enable/disable state for CLI paging.

If CLI paging is enabled and you use the show tech-support command to diagnose system technical problems, the CLI paging feature is disabled.

CLI paging is only active on a per-shell session basis. In other words, when you enable or disable CLI paging from within the current configuration, it only affects that session. For new or existing sessions, paging is enabled by default. This setting cannot be saved.


The following command enables clipaging and does not allow the display to print continuously to the screen:
