Color counters

Each color (0..63) has a counter set, counting frames of that color. Frames are counted if they are forwarded to a host buffer, or if they are recognized as duplicate frames whether they are dropped or not.

Frames that are discarded for other reasons than being duplicates, that is frames that do not match any filter or frames that are dropped, are counted as discarded frames and are not counted by the color counters.

This table explains the color counters.
