debug

Hi, are there any type of debug monitoring cli commands that should be used with caution and that could crash a switch (L3 switch)? Just out of interest. Thanks

Andrew,

As a rule you should always use the debug command with caution.

Producing the debug can/will deminish the router/switch processing memory usage etc.

This link is only one of many example warnings on cco.
