As per the Ansible documentation:
An ad-hoc command is something that you might type in to do something really quick, but don’t want to save for later.
ansible all -i 192.168.0.210, -c local -m ios_facts -a "host=192.168.0.210 username=cisco password=cisco gather_subset=hardware"
Here is another example, this time using the IOS_command module:
ansible all -i 192.168.0.210, -c local -m ios_command -a "host=192.168.0.210 username=cisco password=cisco auth_pass=cisco authorize=true commands='show run'"
