When we report in the solution output that a "contact element xxxxxx has the highest chattering level "n", what does chatter level "n" mean?

The number "n" is CNOS (= total number of contact status changes during this step) as documented in the elements manual for contac17x elements. The output message will be clarified in 12.0 to read "Contact element xxxxxxx has the highest number of status changes (n total) during this step."
