This command clears alias entries out of the Node Alias feature database. You can clear information by specified port(s) or alias ID. Node Alias discovers information about the end systems on a per-port basis. Information from packets from end systems, such as VLANID, source MAC address, source IP address, protocol, etc. are captured in a database that can be queried.
