While I'm not fundamentally opposed to change the buffer size,
I'm wondering if the impacted commands shouldn't be reworked to
have smaller lines. 256 is already a quite big value for a line:


For instance, we could change some commands to use contexts.
Dummy example with reta config:

testpmd> port config 0 rss reta
testpmd-reta-config-0> add hash1 queue1
testpmd-reta-config-0> add hash2 queue2
testpmd-reta-config-0> del hash1 queue1
testpmd-reta-config-0> show
testpmd-reta-config-0> commit

What do you think?
