Yes, as far as I know the only way to clear these particular counters is to reload the router. I suspect that Niranjan did not read the original post quite clearly enough and missed the fact that you were asking about the interface switching counters and gave the generic answer for clearing the general interface counters. I wish it were that simple to clear the switching counters, but I have not found a way to do it short of a reload and assumed that they were maintained in a way similar to SNMP counters.

Hi Taichi, Rick,

Yes, I am sorry but I missed the interface "switching" part and put in a very generic answer. I re-read that part later and wanted to edit the post but couldn't. I am not very familiar with 2800 platform but I thought that the clear interface counters might do that too as it does in 6500 (where sh interface stats shows the mls switched packets and are cleared by the same command).

Really sorry for the confusion.
