Policy rule hit-count data is not stored on the firewall or Panorama

Policy rule hit-count data is not stored on the firewall or Panorama so after you clear the hit count using the reset option, that data is no longer available.

 

Where is this data stored??

@MP18,

A better way of saying this would be that it's an incrementing counter, similar to Cisco Interface counters. Once cleared there isn't any form of logging to inform you what the counter used to be or when it incremented. Obviously the counter is physically stored somewhere, otherwise it would reset upon a restart, but there are no logs associated with it.
