Cisco Console Command Output Question

Hello Experts,

I have written the following alias:

alias exec sim ping ip size 500 repeat 100 timeout 100

However, I don't want the ping results to appear on the screen as shown in the image.

Can someone please let me know how to allow the ping results to run in the background with showing on the console?

AFAIK, the only option that comes close is redirecting the output to a file.  But that redirects all output from the command.

Output Redirection

Thanks for responding.

The link you provided doesn't provide an example. Do you have a sample config?

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
It would be something like "show ip route | redirect flash:file name.txt".

Not sure if it would work with  a non-show command. But you could try it.

There is no such command
