L4 Transporter



i am seeing this counter increasing and I am not sure if i should be worried:


> show counter global filter delta yes Global counters:

Elapsed time since last sampling: 0.15 seconds

name value rate severity category aspect description --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

pkt_recv 289 19266 info packet pktproc Packets received

pkt_recv_zero 216 14400 info packet pktproc Packets received from QoS 0

pkt_sent 371 24733 info  packet pktproc Packets transmitted

pkt_alloc 200 13333 info packet resource Packets allocated

pkt_inconsist 292 19466 info packet pktproc Packet buffer pointer inconsistent

Hi @BigPalo ,


Unfortunately the description of some of the counters can be quite vague and in such cases I would recommend reaching out to TAC to get a clear description of what the counter actuall means/does.
