Color counters

Each color (0..63) has a counter set, counting packets of that color and forwarded to a host buffer.

Discarded frames, that is the frames that do not match any filter or frames that are dropped, are counted as discarded frames and are not forwarded to a host buffer.

This table explains the color counters.
