The Inline Service feature manages service chains for Layer 1 Virtual Wire switches. The term, Inline Services, refers to services attached to a Layer 1 Virtual Wire switch such as Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW), Intrusion Detection System (IDS), Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), and Distributed Denial of Service attack (DDoS) Prevention.

When an Inline Service fails, a policy determines if traffic is allowed to bypass the Inline Services or if the traffic is blocked until the Inline Services recovers.

This command displays information about an inline service configuration.
