    Viewing Statistics About Filtered Traffic (SRC CLI)

    Purpose

    You can obtain information about the packets filtered on a C Series Controller by accessing statistics for the iptables Linux tool. You can also reset the counters for this tool.

    Action

    To view information about packet filtering on a C Series Controller:

    user@host> show iptables <nat | filter | mangle> <reset-counters>

    where

    • nat—Displays information for the nat table for the iptables tool. The nat table provides rules for rewriting packet addresses.
    • filter—Displays information for the filter table for the iptables tool. The filter table provides rules for defining packet filters.
    • mangle—Displays information for the mangle table for the iptables tool. The mangle table provides rules for adjusting packet options, such as quality of service.

      For example:

      user@host> show iptables
      Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT 25M packets, 9401M bytes)
       pkts bytes target     prot opt in     out     source               destination 
      Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT 0 packets, 0 bytes)
       pkts bytes target     prot opt in     out     source               destination 
              
      Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT 24M packets, 4506M bytes)
       pkts bytes target     prot opt in     out     source               destinationreset-counters

    To reset the values in the output for the show iptables command:

    user@host> show iptables reset counters
