Hierarchy Level


Collect additional statistics to be displayed using show commands. An FPC restart is required after changing this configuration.

A warning log message is generated when you commit a configuration that contains the enhanced-policer statement. The log message states that the enhanced policer is enabled on FPCs only after they are restarted. If you do not reboot the FPCs, the FPCs return all 0s (zeros) when you perform a query for the retrieval of detailed statistics—for example, when you issue the show firewall detail command.

Best Practice:

We recommend that you do not use enhanced policers in highly scaled environments. Enhanced policer statistics require significantly more memory for statistics counters than do simple policers. The memory requirements for enhanced policers might exceed your resource memory limit, depending on the number of subscribers in your configuration and on the number of policers configured for the subscribers.
