logging synchronous and exec timeout Commands
 


Logging synchronous

To synchronize unsolicited messages and debug output with solicited Cisco IOS software output and prompts for a specific console port line, auxiliary port line, or vty, use the logging synchronous command in line configuration mode. To disable synchronization of unsolicited messages and debug output, use the no form of this command.

logging synchronous [level severity-level | all] [limit number-of-buffers]

no logging synchronous [level severity-level | all] [limit number-of-buffers]

Syntax Description

 

level severity-level

(Optional) Specifies the message severity level. Messages with a severity level equal to or higher than this value are printed asynchronously. Low numbers indicate greater severity and high numbers indicate lesser severity. The default value is 2.

all

(Optional) Specifies that all messages are printed asynchronously, regardless of the severity level.

limit number-of-buffers

(Optional) Specifies the number of buffers to be queued for the terminal after which new messages are dropped. The default value is 20.

 

Defaults

This command is disabled.

If you do not specify a severity level, the default value of 2 is assumed.

If you do not specify the maximum number of buffers to be queued, the default value of 20 is assumed.

exec-timeout

To set the interval that the EXEC command interpreter waits until user input is detected, use the exec-timeout line configuration command. Use the no form of this command to remove the timeout definition.

exec-timeout minutes [seconds]
no exec-timeout

 

Syntax Description

Usage Guidelines

This command first appeared in Cisco IOS Release 10.0.

If no input is detected during the interval, the EXEC facility resumes the current connection. If no connections exist, the EXEC facility returns the terminal to the idle state and disconnects the incoming session.

To specify no timeout, enter the exec-timeout 0 0 command.

Examples

The following example sets a time interval of 2 minutes, 30 seconds:

line console 
 exec-timeout 2 30

The following example sets a time interval of 10 seconds:

line console 
 exec-timeout 0 10
