To protect the system from unauthorized use, use the userlevel command. AWS Client provides 3 password-protected access levels for using shell commands and viewing system data. By default, user levels are not in use.

CAUTION Improper use of the userlevel command may lead to a malfunction of the QML data logger.
Table 1. Accessible commands in different user levelsThe following table lists the accessible commands in the different user levels.
