Release Information

Command introduced before Junos OS Release 7.4.

logical-system option introduced in Junos OS Release 9.3.


Display prefix action statistics about configured firewall filters.

If you clear statistics for firewall filters that are applied to MPCs and that also use the prefix-action action on matched packets, wait at least 5 seconds before you enter the show firewall prefix-action-stats command. A 5-second pause between issuing the clear firewall and show firewall prefix-action-stats commands avoids a possible timeout of the show firewall prefix-action-stats command.

By default, policers operate in term-specific mode.

See Filter-Specific Policer Overview for information about how to configure policers in filter-specific mode.
