FWSM Access-List hit counter

Answered Question
Jul 29th, 2010

Hi,


When I do a sh access-list on a FWSM running 4.0(5), some of the ACE show a hitcount of * (hitcnt=*) instead of a number. What does that means?


Thanks

Hi Barney,


You'll see the * when ACL optimization is enabled on the FWSM. The * indicates that the rule was merged with another rule(s) due to the optimization, which would make the hitcount for that specific rule inaccurate on its own.


Hope that helps.
