Counter preservation on CPU switchover

Prior to release 12.2(24)SV, a CPU switchover caused counters to be reset to zero. All history of the counters would be lost. In release 12.2(24)SV, counters are preserved at the point of the switchover and continue incrementing after switchover is complete. Counter preservation is enabled by an optional command. For a complete list of interfaces and counters supported, access the documentation via the links below.
