In relation to the ip accounting output-packets command, if packets are being accounted for then can we guarantee that the packet has left the interface?
In what order does ip accounting take place? I presume it would be after output ACL, NAT and crypto but how about QoS? During the QoS process a packet moves from software queue to hardware queue to the interface. It must be at some point during (or after?) this process that the ip accounting information would be incremented?
If you think you may have any useful info then please let me know..
I know it increments after it leaves the interface but I don't have a documentation as far as 'when' the incrementing it's taking place in term of the hardware queues.
