Finding Command Options

The syntax can consist of optional or required keywords.

To display keywords for a command, enter a question mark (?) at the command prompt or after entering part of a command followed by a space.

Netvisor One CLI displays a list of available keywords along with a brief description of the keywords.

For example, if you want to see all of the keywords for the command user, enter user ?.

Table 2, displays examples of using the question mark (?) to assist you with entering commands.

Note: Other useful options, especially for displaying statistics, include: sort, interval, start-time, end-time, duration, count, show-interval, and show-diff-interval. The commands that display the statistics have show-diff-interval as a command option, while other show commands have show-interval as a command option.
