ACE counter operation

For a given ACE in an assigned ACL, the counter increments by 1 each time the switch detects a packet that matches the criteria in that ACE, and maintains a running total of the matches since the last counter reset. For example, in ACL line 10 below, there has been a total of 37 matches on the ACE since the last time the ACL’s counters were reset.

Total ( 37) 10 permit icmp ::/0 fe80::20:2/128 128

This ACL monitoring feature does not include hits on the “implicit deny” that is included at the end of all ACLs.
