disable cli paging

disable cli paging {session | permanent}


Disables pausing at the end of each show screen.

Syntax Description

session Disables viewing output of commands one screenful at a time for the current user session only (default).
permanent Disables viewing output of commands one screenful at a time permanently (setting persists after rebooting).


Clipaging is enabled per session by default.

Usage Guidelines

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

Most show command output pauses when the display reaches the end of a page. This command disables the pause mechanism and allows the display to print continuously to the screen.

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.


The following command disables cli paging permanently (persists after rebooting) and allows you to print continuously to the screen:
