line-interval (Dampen Options)


Hierarchy Level


Specify the number of lines of scripts to execute before pausing.

Script dampening is initiated when CPU use exceeds the value specified using the cpu-factor statement. Junos OS then executes the number of lines of script specified using the line-interval statement and then pauses script execution for the time specified using the time-interval statement. If you do not configure values for these statements, the default values are used.



Specify the line interval at which to pause.
