In earlier versions of Netvisor, Netvisor did not support viewing current user sessions using the CLI.  This can be very useful for security and troubleshooting. Netvisor now lists all currently logged-in users along with the IP they are connecting from and the login time when you execute the command, mgt-session-show.

Syntax   mgmt-session-show

user user-string

Displays the user name.

cli-user cli-user-string 

Displays the name used to log into the switch.

pid pid-number

Displays the process ID.

terminal terminal-string

Displays the terminal.

from-ip ip-address

Displays the IP address for the user.

login-time date/time: yyyy-mm-ddTHH:mm:ss

Displays the time and date that the user logged into the switch.

Formatting Options
