Enhanced Policer Statistics Overview

 

You can use the enhanced policer statistics to analyze traffic for debugging purposes on MPC/MIC interfaces on MX Series routers and Multi-Rate Ethernet Enhanced Queuing IP Services DPC with SFP and XFP.

Enhanced policer statistics provide the following:

  • Offered packet statistics for traffic subjected to policing.

  • OOS packet statistics for packets that are marked out-of-specification by the policer. Changes to all packets that have out-of-specification actions, such as discard, color marking, or forwarding-class, are included in this counter.

  • Transmitted packet statistics for traffic that is not discarded by the policer. When the policer action is discard, the statistics are the same as the within-specification statistics; when the policer action is non-discard (loss-priority or forwarding-class), the statistics are included in this counter.
