Syntax Description

port_list Lists ports to clear MACsec counters on.


Counters for all MACsec ports are cleared unless you choose specific MACsec ports.

Usage Guidelines

This command clears the 4 packet/octet values of the show macsec ports port-list usage command, as well as all the statistics shown under the heading “SecY Interface Statistics” of the show macsec ports port-list detail command.

Additionally, all MACsec port statistics are cleared by the clear counters ports {port_list | all} command.


The following example clears all MACsec counters on port 44:
