Scripting How-To: Call shell commands with an event policy

By Erdem posted 08-10-2015 10:41


Users cannot run shell commands through an event policy because of security reasons. Only CLI commands are allowed to run from an event policy action.


If a user wants to get data from PFE/KERNEL, "request pfe execute" can be used to execute PFE commands.


SLAX scripts can use <request-pfe-execute> RPC and the jcs:sysctl(..) function to get this information.
