Command Syntax Notation Conventions
Table 21 shows the notation conventions used in this document to describe command syntax.
Text enclosed in angel brackets (< >) is variable and must be replaced by whatever it represents. In the example to the right, the user would replace <file_name> with the name of the specific file.
The information enclosed in box brackets ([ ]) is optional. Anything not enclosed in brackets must be specified.
web proxy host <IP_address>
[port <TCP_port>]
Braces ({ }) identify a set of mutually exclusive options, where one option is required
You can enter one of the options separated by the vertical bar, but you cannot enter multiple options in a singe use of the command.
analytics last-evict-time
diff <1 | seconds>
Bold text designates literal information that must be entered on the command line exactly as shown. This applies to command names and non-variable options.
An ellipsis (...) indicates that the previous option can be repeated multiple times with different values. It can be used inside or outside of brackets.
