Create per-request session limit

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


This command allows creation of a per-request management session limit that does not yet exist.


-interface {cli|ontapi} - Interface (privilege: advanced)

The interface (CLI or ONTAPI) to which the limit applies.

-request <text> - Request Name (privilege: advanced)

The specified request to which this limit applies. The limit with the request name -default- is the limit used for any request without a specific configured limit.

-max-active-limit <integer> - Max-Active Limit (privilege: advanced)

The maximum number of concurrent sessions allowed for this interface and request.


The following example illustrates creating a limit for number of clients executing a specific API.

cluster1::*> security session limit request create -interface ontapi -request storage-disk-get-iter -max-active-limit 2
