Hit counts against access-list

I added some access lists to my core switch which resolved some access issues. However I don't see any counts against that ACL ... what are the rules regarding when you see hit counts against ACL's ??

Thanks

Brent

Re: Hit counts against access-list

Easiest way is to check docs on the switch you are using. It will tell you where the acl processing takes place and which keywords stop it being processed in hardware eg. here is the 6500 documentation on this -

If the acl is processed in hardware you don't get hit counts on the acl. For example a 6500 with Sup720 processes most acl's in hardware.

Re: Hit counts against access-list

Hey Thanks for the quick response. That must be it.

Is there anyway to tell if it's doing this? Processing in the hardware I mean.
