Let's say someone ssh'ed onto an ASA 5500 router and in the config terminal sent this command:

clear config all

Let's say that just after that the router was rebooted. What would be the result?

It clears the running config from the device.  By the way, an ASA 5500 is not a router, it's a firewall/vpn device.

By the way, the clear config all command doesn't do any harm unless you issue a wr mem.  After doing a clear config all, if you reboot the ASA, the config will come back.
