Displaying Counts of Event Occurrences

EMS (Event Management System) adds the ability to count the number of occurrences of events. Even when an event is filtered from all log targets, the event is counted.

Display the event counters.
show log counters {event condition | [all | event component]} {include | notified | occurred} {severity severity {only}}}

The system displays two counters. One counter displays the number of times an event has occurred, and the other displays the number of times that notification for the event was made to the system for further processing. Both counters reflect totals accumulated since reboot or since the counters were cleared using the clear log counters or clear counters command.

The show log counters command also displays an included flag (the column titled In in the output). The included flag is set to Y(es) if one or more targets are receiving notifications of this event without regard to matching parameters.

The keywords include, notified, and occurred display events only with non-zero counter values for the corresponding counter.

The output of the command:

show log counters stp.inbpdu severity debug-summary

is similar to the following:

Comp    SubComp     Condition               Severity      Occurred  In Notified
------- ----------- ----------------------- ------------- --------  -- --------
STP     InBPDU      Drop                    Error                0  Y         0
STP     InBPDU      Ign                     Debug-Summary        0  N         0
STP     InBPDU      Mismatch                Warning              0  Y         0
Occurred  : # of times this event has occurred since last clear or reboot
Flags     : (*) Not all applications responded in time with there count values
In(cluded): Set to Y(es) if one or more targets filter includes this event
Notified  : # of times this event has occurred when 'Included' was Y(es)

The output of the command:

show log counters stp.inbpdu.drop

is similar to the following:

Comp    SubComp     Condition               Severity      Occurred  In Notified
------- ----------- ----------------------- ------------- --------  -- --------
STP     InBPDU      Drop                    Error                0  Y         0
Occurred  : # of times this event has occurred since last clear or reboot
Flags     : (*) Not all applications responded in time with there count values
In(cluded): Set to Y(es) if one or more targets filter includes this event
Notified  : # of times this event has occurred when 'Included' was Y(es)
