security session show

Show active CLI, ONTAPI, and REST sessions

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

The security session show command displays all active management sessions across the cluster.

Parameters

{ [-fields <fieldname>, ...]
If you specify the -fields <fieldname>, ... parameter, the command output also includes the specified field or fields. You can use '-fields ?' to display the fields to specify.
| [-instance ]}
If you specify the -instance parameter, the command displays detailed information about all fields.
[-node {<nodename>|local}] - Node
Selects the sessions that match this parameter value. This identifies the node that is processing the session.
[-interface {cli|ontapi|rest}] - Interface
Selects the sessions that match this parameter value. This identifies the interface (CLI, ONTAPI, or REST) that is processing the session.
[-start-time <MM/DD HH:MM:SS>] - Start Time
Selects the sessions that match this parameter value. This identifies the start time of the current active session.
[-session-id <integer>] - Session ID
Selects the sessions that match this parameter value. This number uniquely identifies a management session within a given node.
[-vserver <vserver>] - Vserver
Selects the sessions that match this parameter value. This identifies the Vserver associated with this management session.
[-username <text>] - Username
Selects the sessions that match this parameter value. This identifies the authenticated user associated with this management session.
[-application <text>] - Client Application
Selects the sessions that match this parameter value. This identifies the calling application by name.
[-location <text>] - Client Location
Selects the sessions that match this parameter value. This identifies the location of the calling client application. This is typically the IP address of the calling client, or "console" or "localhost" for console or localhost connections.
[-ipspace <IPspace>] - IPspace of Location
Selects the sessions that match this parameter value. This identifies the IPspace of the client location.
[-total <integer>] - Total Requests
Selects the sessions that match this parameter value. This identifies the total number of requests that have been made thus far in the active session. The following commands are not counted: top, up, cd, rows, history, exit.
[-failed <integer>] - Failed Requests
Selects the sessions that match this parameter value. This identifies the number of requests that have failed for any reason (including if they were blocked by configured limits).
[-max-time <integer>] - Maximum Time (ms)
Selects the sessions that match this parameter value. This identifies the maximum amount of time (in milliseconds) that any request took for this session.
[-last-time <integer>] - Last Time (ms)
Selects the sessions that match this parameter value. This identifies the amount of time (in milliseconds) that the last request took for this session.
[-total-seconds <integer>] - Total Seconds
Selects the sessions that match this parameter value. This identifies the total time (in seconds) that has been taken by all completed requests for the current session; it does not include session idle time.
[-state {pending|active|idle}] - Session State
Selects the sessions that match this parameter value. This identifies the state (pending, active, or idle) of the session. The state is "pending" if it hit a session limit and the session is waiting for another session to end. The state is "idle" for CLI sessions that are waiting at the command prompt. The state is "active" if the session is actively working on a request.
[-request <text>] - Request Input
Selects the sessions that match this parameter value. This identifies the request (command) that is currently being handled by the session.
[-idle-seconds <integer>] - Idle Seconds
Selects the sessions that match this parameter value. When a session is not actively executing a command request (the session is idle), this indicates the time (in seconds) since the last request completed.
[-active-seconds <integer>] - Active Seconds
Selects the sessions that match this parameter value. When a session is actively executing a command request, this indicates the time (in seconds) since the current request started.

Examples

The following example illustrates displaying all active sessions across the cluster. In this example, we see one active session on node node2 from the console application. We also see three active sessions on node node1. One is from the console application and two are from the ssh application. Also one of the ssh sessions is from user diag and the other ssh session is from user admin.
