All the counters in the Power Conditions Transitions log page are
saturating counters (i.e., the stop counting when they reach their
four billion maximum value).
All the counters in the Power Conditions Transitions log page
are not resettable (i.e., they increment by one for every power
transition from the time the device is manufactured until it
falls into disuse).
If by some coincidence of good design or excessive use of
power transitions one of these counters reaches its maximum
value, that counter has no further value.
If anybody cares about this, a proposal could be drafted to:
a) change the counters to wrapping counters; or
b) allow the counters to be reset by a LOG SELECT.
All the best,
.Ralph
