show buffer

Displays buffer data from the modem or device. This can be helpful in debugging device issues. Data is stored in a 1 MB current buffer; when this buffer fills, it is renamed previous and a new current buffer is created. A timestamp is added to the log when more than 5 minutes has occurred between entries. The buffers are memory-resident and reset when the Lantronix is restarted.
