Resource usage questions

I was trying to clear stats for resource usage and I can't clear it

I did clear stats all and it does not clear it

TEST-EWDC-T1ACE12-1/Education# clear stats all

TEST-EWDC-T1ACE12-1/Education# show resource usage

why not? Also when I do write mem is it using resources ?

Also does anybody whats a limit on number of lines per context ? meaning after how many lines u will see performance issue?

Re: Resource usage questions

You can't clear resource usage info.

This info comes from the micro engines and like all ME stats, the counters can't be cleared.

A 'wr mem' is not using resource tracked by the 'show resource' command.

Obviously you will use disk space, CPU and memory just to run the command.

There is no limit on number of lines.

The limit would be the size of nvram.

You would get performance issue when the number of objects like policy/acl increases.

You will clearly know when you hit performance issue as with large config we have seen delays of 30minutes for the prompt to get back.

If your config gets that big, you will be recommended to run A2(2.0)

Re: Resource usage questions

we have migrated to A2(2.0) and we have about 8300 lines on a context where we see issues where when we do wr mem it takes time and when add a config like loadbalance vip icm-reply it takes about a 1 minute for the prompt to come back.

here is another question we have about 30 ACLS on this context. When I do show acl mergd-list vlan 621 in I get the following output

What does the following mean it says Total:44226 Non_redundant:42550
