Logging with ACL's a12500

Logging with ACL's a12500

What is the expected behavior when appending "logging"  to the end of an ACL entry?  For example:
rule 10 permit udp source-port eq bootps logging
I expected to see a log for every match that contains the source IP, destination IP and port but I'm not currently seeing that.  What I am seeing in the log is that this entry was matched "X" amount of times(see below), but no details as to source/destination/port.  Is that possible with the A-Series? Am I missing some additional configuration to accomplish this?  Thanks for your time.

RE: Logging with ACL's a12500

This is expected behavior. The device is a fully distributed forwarding platform, so it will not log these types of messages. It will only give you a hit count.

All high performance devices have this behavior. The Cat6500's will do what you're asking, but when that feature is used all traffic is punted to the supervisor to be software switched. The new Nexus platforms behave just like the 12500's..
