Understanding PFC QoS Statistics Data Export

The PFC QoS statistics data export feature generates per-LAN-port and per-aggregate policer utilization information and forwards this information in UDP packets to traffic monitoring, planning, or accounting applications. You can enable PFC QoS statistics data export on a per-LAN-port or on a per-aggregate policer basis. The statistics data generated per port consists of counts of the input and output packets and bytes. The aggregate policer statistics consist of counts of allowed packets and counts of packets exceeding the policed rate.

The PFC QoS statistics data collection occurs periodically at a fixed interval, but you can configure the interval at which the data is exported. PFC QoS statistics collection is enabled by default, and the data export feature is disabled by default for all ports and all aggregate policers configured on the Cisco 7600 series router.


Note The PFC QoS statistics data export feature is completely separate from NetFlow Data Export and does not interact with it.

Command
Purpose

Step 1

Router(config)# mls qos statistics-export interval interval_in_seconds

Sets the time interval for the PFC QoS statistics data export.

Note The interval needs to be short enough to avoid counter wraparound with the activity in your configuration, but because exporting PFC QoS statistic creates a significant load on the router, be careful when decreasing the interval.

Router(config)# no mls qos statistics-export interval interval_in_seconds

Reverts to the default time interval for the PFC QoS statistics data export.

Step 2

Router(config)# end
