hi every body!

My book shows following commands:

history size x (line configuration mode)

If both commands set to diffirent number, which one will take precedence?

Thanks a lot!

I believe you are comparing history size and terminal history size.

The history size will affect any connections made to that line while the terminal history size will only affect the current session. Once that session disconnects it will revert back to the default.

The terminal history size will change the size during that session so it overrides any history size setting for that session.
