show command

Use the show command to see the current value of one or more settings.


The syntax of the show command is either
asu show [all |  --group group_name |  setting_name | 
--setlist name1..nameN | class] [-v] [-nx] [connect_options]

If no command modifier or class setting is specified, all settings and their current values are displayed.


  1. If the optional all parameter is specified, all settings are displayed.
  2. If the optional --group group_name is specified, only settings in the group group_name are displayed.
  3. If the optional --setlist name1..nameN is specified, only the settings that are specified in name1..nameN are displayed.
  4. If the optional class setting is specified, only settings that belong to the specific class are displayed.
  5. If the optional -v parameter is specified, the output is verbose.
  6. If the optional -nx parameter is specified, the ASU performs the operation for node x, where x is the selected node in a multi-node system. Node x can be a number from 1 through 8. If the -nx parameter is not specified, the operation is performed on the primary node (node 1).
  7. The connect options are defined for IMM-based servers only. The --host ip_address, --user user_id, and --password password connect options are all required if you connect remotely to the IMM. The default user and password will not provide for out-of-band way now. The default user and password will not support an out-of-band connection now. The --mtsn, --net, --user, and --password options can be used to connect to IMM-based servers if the server running ASU and the target IMM-based servers are in one LAN. The --user user_id and --password password connect options are not required if you are using the local KCSinterface.


If the -v parameter is not specified, the setting and the current value are displayed. If the -v parameter is specified, the description of the setting is displayed as well as an indicator that the value is the default value.

The setting without the -v parameter:
<setting>=<current value>
The setting with the -v parameter:
<setting>: <setting description> = <current value> [(default)]
