Use the sleep command to pause the CLI for a specified number of seconds in order to add a delay.

For example, when you enter several configuration commands in a row, such as by copying commands from a file, you can use the sleep command to introduce a pause between commands. In a cluster environment, this provides time for the standby units to synchronize with the leader and thus avoid any leader/standby synchronization failures.

The sleep command has the following syntax:

sleep <number of seconds>

For example:

(config) # sleep 2
