The "monitor command" command allows you to repeatedly run a command to view a continuously refreshed output. The command is run and output every 2 seconds, allowing you to monitor the output continuously without having to re-run the command. This can be useful to follow routing adjacency formation.

Syntax

monitor command "<command>"

Example

Running this command:

vyos@router:~$ monitor command "show interfaces"

Will clear the screen and show you the output of "show interfaces" every 2 seconds.
