    Pipe it to more like bio said, that's the standard way of viewing more than a screen's worth of data one screen at a time under Linux. You can do it with anything, like viewing a log file or something: cat filename.log | more. At the end of each page hit the spacebar.

    Alternatively, enable SSH on your ESX box then use Putty to connect to it. That way you get a scroll bar and can see your whole session. When you need some space to think clearly just run clear.

    I don't know if this is the case with just ESXi or whether it applies to ESX too, but SSH isn't supported by VMware unless you're working with their tech support department. You have to go through an 'unsupported' method to do it, and once you're in you get a full shell. Just a heads-up.
