Understanding SRC CLI Command Modes


The SRC CLI has two modes:

  • Operational mode—Provides commands to monitor and troubleshoot system status.

  • Configuration mode—Provides commands and configuration statements to define properties for the SRC software. The statements appear in a hierarchy which groups related properties.

In configuration mode, you view and change a working configuration, called the candidate configuration. This configuration allows you to make configuration changes without causing operational changes to the current operating configuration, called the active configuration. The software does not implement the changes in a candidate configuration until you commit them, which activates the configuration in the SRC software.
