Enables the Express Path mode (formerly known as services offloading) mode on the selected network processor. Services-offload is not enabled by default.

When services-offload is enabled, only the first packets of a session goes to the Services Processing Unit (SPU), rest of packets in services-offload mode does not go to SPU, therefore some security features such as stateful screen are not supported. Only TCP and UDP packets can be services offloaded.


The remaining statements are explained separately. See CLI Explorer.
