When using the CLI of cisco devices, there is the "logging syncronous" command that keeps the log messages from interrupting the command prompt. Do Dell PowerConnect switches have a similar command somewhere?

The user enables events or monitor traps from the CLI by entering the command logging console. Traps generated by the system are dumped to all CLI sessions that have requested monitoring mode to be enabled. The no logging console command disables trap monitoring for the session. By default, console logging is enabled.

console# no logging console

That's not quite what I was looking for. I still want to see the log messages. Is there a way to have the console prompt and what I've typed re-displayed after the log message has been displayed? – Force Flow Apr 16 '12 at 13:23

According to the CLI manual, the feature is not available.
