The following example shows IPC statistics for the sapm process.

To view the statistics of transmitted, received, and denied messages, three additional output parameters are introduced in the show ipc statistics command output.

Tx Sign—the number of messages which were signed before transmitting

Rx Sign—the number of messages validated through digest validation

Rx Denied—the number of messages denied due to incorrect digest
