router#sh crypto engine accelerator statistic [cardID]

However when typing this command no result is returned. Does anyone have a clue what the reason ca be?

The card is working properly:

Re: Monitoring VPN accelator card

Hi, if I remembered correctly, the "sh crypto eng acc stat" command only works for AIM modules for the 26xx/36xx/37xx routers. I had not learnt the command that shows the same information for ISA/ISM modules in the 7100/7200 series router yet.

If anybody knows how to get ISA/ISM statistics, please advise.

Re: Monitoring VPN accelator card

we have learned in the meantime from Cisco to use the following command set on 71xx routers having a VPN accelator card installed:

sh pas isa ?

controller show controller

interface show interface
