"show port congestion" packet drop counter

Is the XOS "show port congestion" packet drop counter ingress (from connected device) or egress (toward connected device) ? Support told me ingress, yet I have seen at least one KB article stating it is an egress stat.

The counter is egress
Thanks B-rad. Knowing the typical packet flow on the ports in question, I figured it was egress. There is network storage attached to the 10G ports that are experiencing the congestion. In backup jobs that are intermittently timing out, the data is being backed up to, not from the storage.
