When you do an iptables -L -v, you'll see the stats about the number of packets that each rule has allowed/denied.
When you use iptables-save, it saves your ruleset as well as the stats.
I believe those are part of the saved stats.
thank you for answer. i think that process state of iptables but i'm not sure.
Nope = [packets:bytes]
