Clearing porterrshow data

I have a silkworm 2800 running 2.6.2 and I haven't been able to find in the documentation how to clear the statistics from the porterrshow command. Removing this old data would be very helpful in examining the current health of the fabric. Any help would be much appreciated.

Apparently, rebooting the switch is the answer. How about a clear counters option instead? Rebooting a device to get this result in a supposed HA environment is unacceptable.

The problem is that those errors are kept on the ASIC, so there's really no way to clear them without rebooting.Maybe on the newer ASICs they'll have an option to do that.
