Create per-user session limit

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


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


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

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

-vserver <vserver> - Vserver (privilege: advanced)

The specified Vserver to which this limit applies. The "Cluster" Vserver is used to limit Vservers that do not have a configured limit.

-user <text> - User (privilege: advanced)

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

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

The maximum number of concurrent sessions allowed for this interface, Vserver, and user.


The following example illustrates creating a per-user limit override for ONTAPI requests for the admin user in the admin Vserver.

cluster1::*> security session limit user create -interface ontapi -vserver cluster1 -username admin -max-active-limit 16
