the switch.

Parameters appear in the parameter tables in the same order and spelling as the switch shows them.

Most switch attribute descriptions show two tables—InputParameter and Output Parameter. If the parameter has already been described in the input parameter table, no reference to it appears in the output parameter table. The output parameter table contains only parameters that have not been described in the input parameter table or that are written very differently on output despite having the same meaning.

Introduction

Only one parameter table in a switch attribute section means either that switch attribute uses only input parameters or that the output parameters are identical to the input parameters. The heading of the table indicates which is the case. If the table heading says Input Parameter or Output Parameter, only input or output parameters apply to this switch attribute. However, if the table heading says Parameter, the table contains both input and output parameters, and their field names and definitions are identical.

Some output parameters show either (</d>) or (</s>) to indicate that a filter flag is available and that parameter is available only when you type either /d (detailed information) or /s (summarized information) after the command. If you do not type these command extensions, the parameters do not appear. Further explanations are given at relevant sections. See "SVC" for an example.

The following table gives details about several of the most common parameters in this manual; a shorter description of these parameters appears at the relevant sections within the manual:

[PortNumber]

Port number on the switch. Port

 

numbers can be any of the physical

 

ports on the local switch. Specifying

 

"ALL" causes all related values for the

 

ports to be affected by the command.

Port B4 is the CPU port. The

are listed.

With [IndexNumber], [PortNumber], [Client Number], and other parameters that default to "ALL", unless you specify a number at that input field, the switch gives ALL information pertaining to that parameter field.
