The CPU Control Packet Processing Protection feature allows the CPU control packet processing path be protected against misbehaving and malicious hosts or end-points that may flood control protocol packets. This is also called “CPU hog protection”.

Netvisor provides three types of Control Plane Protection:

Syntax   hog-violator-stats-show


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

Displays the time and date to start statistics collection.

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

Displays the start time of the statistics collection.

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

Displays the end time of the statistics collection.

duration duration: #d#h#m#s

Displays the duration of statistics collection.

interval duration: #d#h#m#s 

Displays the interval between statistics collection.


Displays the statistics collection since the start time.

older-than duration: #d#h#m#s

Displays the statistics collection older than the time.

within-last duration: #d#h#m#s

Displays the statistics collection within a specified time period.

name vflow-name 

Displays the name of the vFlow.

vnet #d#h#m#s

Displays the VNET name.


Displays the ID assigned by Netvisor.

Formatting Options


format fields-to-display

Display output using a specific parameter. Use all to display all possible output.

parsable-delim character

Display output formatted for machine parsing using a specified delimiter.


Display output in ascending order.


Display output in descending order.

show dups

Display duplicate entries in the output.

layout vertical|horizontal

Format the output in a vertical or horizontal layout.

show-interval seconds-interval

Repeat the show command at a specified interval.


Display column headers or not.

limit-output number

Limit the display output to a specific number of entries.


Display the number of entries in the output. This is useful with vRouter show commands.


Display full values in the output instead of scaled approximate values.


Display integer values instead of mapped values


Aggregate output by specific parameters. If sum-by fields are specified, records that have the same value in sum-by fields are combined and displayed as one aggregate record. NOTE: This option is only available for show commands that collect statistics such as connection-stats-show.

Defaults   None

Access   Network Administrator

History   Command introduced in Version 2.6.0.

Usage   Use this command to display settings for CPU hog violator statistics.

Examples  To display settings for CPU hog violator statistics, use the following syntax:

CLI network-admin@switch > hog-violator-stats-settings-show

CLI network-admin@switch > show-diff-interval 1
