clear elrp counters

clear elrp counters


Clears and resets the ELRP counters.

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or variables.



Usage Guidelines

You should view the switch statistics before you delete the ELRP counters. Use the show log counters command to display event statistics.

Viewing and maintaining statistics on a regular basis allows you to see how well your network is performing. If you keep simple daily records, you will see trends emerging and notice problems arising before they cause major network faults. By clearing the counters, you can see fresh statistics for the time period that you are monitoring.

With hard-assisted ELRP, the request to clear ACL counters is sent from ELRP to the ACL manager, and then to hardware one at a time. Since there is one ACL counter per VLAN port, it may take some time for all of the counters to be cleared in hardware when multiple ACL counters are used. If you run the clear elrp counters command before all counters are reset, the Pkts-Xmit statistics for some VLANs might temporarily show the sum of partially cleared counters.


The following command clears all switch statistics related to ELRP:

# clear elrp counters
