How to clear logs on HP switch

Hi,

Im using 48 port HP procurve switch...

When I use the command "sh int" , its showing the complete statistics of each and individual ports including the Tx and Rx packets information.Also its showing up the packet drops information too.

If I give the "clear log" and "clear statistics all" commands and retry with "sh int" the logs for packet drops column seems empty.But once I relogin into the switch again its showing the packet drops information with the same value before clearing the log.

Can any one help in deleting those logs....

Thanks...

Hi Al_Hassan_Group,

The Event Log of a switch can be cleared with the "clear log" command. Then issue the "show log" command to see only new Event Log messages. Issuing the "show logging -a" command will still display all events that have occurred since the switch was last rebooted.

On HP switches, the "clear statistics" only clears the counters for the current telnet session.

Try the command "clear statistics global".  This should clear them out completely.

From what I understand, this command wasn't in earlier versions of the firmware either, so if it doesn't work, I would look up your firmware to see if it's supported.
