Name

ip accounting-threshold — global

Synopsis

ip accounting-threshold log-size
no ip accounting-threshold log-size

Configures

The IP accounting log table

Default

512 entries

Description

This command sets the size of the IP accounting table to log-size bytes. Each entry takes up to 26 bytes. Therefore, an accounting table defined at 100 entries could consume up to 2600 bytes of memory. This calculation should be kept in mind when defining new thresholds, as memory usage has adverse affects on the router.

Example

To double the accounting buffer:

ip accounting-threshold 1024
