Matrix N-Series DFE

Symptoms
Cli session logout time changes may be volatile.
Not saved to NVRAM.

Cause
The logout time is the maximum number of minutes that the (Serial or Telnet) cli application may await input from a user. For example, if the number 5 is entered using the 'set logout' command set, the user has up to five minutes to key in each cli command before the cli session is terminated and the display returns to the login screen. If set to 0, the logout feature is disabled.

The logout time defaults to 10 minutes ('set logout 10 default') but may be changed to any value within the range 0-333333 minutes.

Here is an example of a cli session demonstrating this command set:
 DFE(rw)->set logout ?
<timeout> Number of minutes until an idle session is disconnected
DFE(rw)->set logout 10 ?
default Make this setting persist for all future sessions
<cr>
DFE(rw)->set logout 10 default ?
<cr>
DFE(rw)->show logout
Logout currently set to: 10 minutes.
DFE(rw)->

If the 'default' parameter is specified, the command is reflected in a 'show logout' query (applies to the current cli session) and appears in a 'show config' or 'show config logout' query (applies to future sessions). This form of the command is non-volatile, so survives a System reset.

If the 'default' parameter is not specified, the command is reflected in a 'show logout' query (applies to the current session) but does not appear in a 'show config' or 'show config logout' query (does not apply to future sessions). This form of the command is volatile, applicable only for the duration of the current cli session.

Note that a configuration of 'set logout 10 default', since it matches the default condition, would not actually appear in a 'show config' or 'show config logout' query but does indeed apply to current and/or future sessions until/unless overridden.
