Description (partial)

Symptom:
When enabling flow control on an interface that is part of the 4GE-SSM, the available settings for the high and low watermarks are 0-11 KB due to architectural differences in the module. The ASA command reference needs to be updated with the following to reflect this:

high_water:
Sets the high-water mark, between 0 and 511 KB for 10 GigabitEthernet, and between 0 and 47 KB for 1 GigabitEthernet (or 0 and 11 KB for GigabitEthernet interfaces on the 4GE-SSM). When the buffer usage exceeds the high-water mark, the NIC sends a pause frame.

low_water:
Sets the low-water mark, between 0 and 511 KB for 10 GigabitEthernet, and between 0 and 47 KB for 1 GigabitEthernet (or 0 and 11 KB for GigabitEthernet interfaces on the 4GE-SSM). After the network interface controller (NIC) sends a pause frame, when the buffer usage is reduced below the low-water mark, the NIC sends an XON frame. The link partner can resume traffic after receiving an XON frame.

Conditions:
This is a request to update the ASA's command reference documentation.
