2910al-48G: Resetting port statistics with SNMP set?

2910al-48G: Resetting port statistics with SNMP set?

[ Edited ]



I wondering if it possible to actually reset the 2910al-48G switch's port statistics permantly without having to reboot the switch, by using a SNMP set instead?


(If you do a "clear interface statistics" the statistics will only reset in during that session)


For example if I wanted to reset the tx dropped packets counter on port to 0:


snmpset.exe -u operator -c myCommunity -v 2c ifOutDiscards.16 i 0


Sadly, I have currently no HP switches for lab testing, so I'm not to happy about just trying this command out in our office network switches.

Apparently this is not possible because the MIBs OIDs is using the data type "Counter32" or "Counter64" which is read-only.


But would be great if someone proved me wrong or came up with a work-around though.
