  • Hi,


    Here are the normal procedure to view uptime of the device for individual and Viprion devices.


    1. Non-Viprion device: uptime
    2. Viprion device:
      1. Go to each slot/blade using ssh command Eg: ssh slot1
      2. Once you are on slot1 use uptime command to view blade1/slot1 status
      3. Do same for other blade/slot
    3. You can use below command for viprion devices clsh uptime
