Interactive command to set up pulse server use. The pulse address is a server running the echo port (defaults to TCP port 7) and is used to determine network availability and operation. This command allows you to configure the system to use outband dial-up when the pulse fails.

config system pulse
Choose a pulse host on a network that defines operational minimum for the connected network devices.
Note: The Cisco IOS TCP small server service before IOS 12.4 cannot be used to respond to echo requests from the Uplogix Local Manager.
If the pulse fails four successive requests, this triggers outband connectivity. After the outband connection is established, the pulse must pass five successive requests to drop outband connectivity. Pulse generates an alarm on its first failure.
