Logging Frequency
How often packet flows are logged.
Range: Any integer value. While you can configure any integer value for the frequency, the software rounds the value down to the nearest power of 2.
Default: 1000. With this default, the logging frequency is rounded down to 512. So, by default, every 512th packet is logged.


Configure packet flow logging to log every 16 packets. Note that the configured logging frequency value of 20 is rounded down to 16, which is the nearest power of 2. With this configuration, every sixteenth packet is logged.
