show interfaces forwarding-class-counters



Display interface accounting information by forwarding class for IPv4, IPv6, MPLS, Layer 2, and Other traffic.



(Optional) Display forwarding-class-counters per traffic family for all logical interfaces under the physical interface along with other quality-of-service information.

Additional Information

For physical interface-level statistics, if none of the logical interfaces have any of the traffic families configured on them, the forwarding class statistics for that family are still displayed with a value of 0.

For physical interface-level statistics, in case of Layer 2 families such as ccc, tcc, or vpls, the Layer2 keyword is displayed because it is possible that different Layer 2 families are configured on the logical interface.

For logical interface-level statistics, the output displays statistics only for families that are configured on that logical interface. The statistics under Other family are still displayed because these are packets that are not classified as belonging to any family.

In the case of Layer 2 families such as ccc, tcc, or vpls configured on the logical interface, the actual family name is displayed in the output.

Statistics include input and output byte and packets and corresponding rates.
