From CT3

If you want to e-mail printouts of multiple show commands from your EEM applet, you have to:

  • execute the desired show commands and combine their outputs in a local file with the append output redirection;
  • list the contents of the selected local file with the more command;
  • send the results with the action mail command using $_cli_result variable in the e-mail body.
Usage guidelines:
  • You have to erase the file that will collect the show outputs with the delete /force command before the first show command is executed
  • The append output redirection works only on Flash cards formatted as DOS file system
  • If you cannot reformat your Flash card, use NVRAM as the temporary storage

The following sample EEM applet executes the show version and show logging commands and e-mails the results to the network operator. Please check the Send e-mail from EEM applet page for additional detailed explanations of various EEM environment variables and action mail command parameters.
