How to reset the unused rules counter ?


How can I reset the "unused rules" counter without reboot the firewall ? Is there a command for this ?

The clear counter global and clear counter all are the only administrative clearing commands.

But these are mainly for interface and drop counters.

As a side question, I did a show counter and show counter global, grep'd for 'unused' but I didn't see the unused rules counter - I know I have a gui button to show the unused rules, but I was wondering if there was a document that explains "unused rules" a little bit.

From my understanding, it's every rule that has not been used since the firewall last boot.
