I want to pull alerts from my cluster using ncli. however, the alert message gets truncated. here is an example:
ncli> alerts ls max-alerts=1

Message : Unable to locate VM(s) VM1, VM2, VM3, VM4, VM5, VM6, VM7, VM8, VM9, VM10, VM11, VM12, VM13, VM15, V... protected by protection domain 'PDgroup2'.

Notice the truncated portion with '...'. Is there a switch i can send with ncli to prevent that truncation?

@rhunt unfortunately i resolved all of the alerts that included a large number of VMs, so it’s inconclusive.  I’ll try to generate a few more :P
