View and control long output ('more' feature)

If the information to display is too long to fit in your CLI window then Vyatta NOS will make use of the native Linux 'more' feature to break the output into chunks.

Commands to control the display of long output ('more')

The Linux operating system provides several commands to control the display of information with the 'more' feature; here we list a few important ones.

Note: To learn more about the 'more' feature and available commands, refer to Linux documentation.
  • To exit a 'more' display, press q
  • To scroll down one whole screen, press <Space>
  • To scroll up one whole screen, press b
  • To scroll down one line, press <Enter>
  • To scrolls up one line, press <Up Arrow>

Show information about the system configuration

An example of how to use the show command to display information about the system configuration.

In configuration mode, you can use the show command to display information that you have explicitly set. Or, you can use show -all command to display information that you have set, plus all default information.
At the configuration mode command prompt, enter show -all.
user@system# show -all
The CLI will start to display comprehensive information, one section at a time with a break for the the 'more' prompt (a colon :). (We have removed some lines from this example, to save space.)
interfaces {
     dataplane dp0p160p1 {
         mtu 1500
     loopback lo {

Exit from a 'more' display

An example of how to exit from a 'more' display at the : prompt.

At the 'more' prompt (colon :), enter q.
	dataplane dp0p1p4{
		duplex auto
		hw-id 00:14:bf:5a:84:f9
		speed auto
: q
The CLI returns to the command prompt.
