time-interval (Dampen Options)


Hierarchy Level


Specify the length of time during which to pause the execution of one or more scripts.

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 defaults are used.



Specify the time in microseconds to pause script execution.
