RX packets experienced errors for Cisco

Vendor

Cisco

Description

Indeni tracks the number of packets that had issues and alerts if the ratio is too high.

Remediation Steps

Packet errors usually occur when there is a mismatch in the speed and duplex settings on two sides of a cable, or a damaged cable.

1. Run the "show interface" command to review the interface error counters and the bitrate. Consider to configure the "load-interval 30" interface sub command to improve the accuracy of the interface measurements.

2. Check for a mismatch in the speed and duplex interface settings on two sides of a cable, or for a damaged cable.

3. Use the "show interface counters errors" NX-OS command to display detailed interface error counters. If you do not specify an interface, this command displays information about all Layer 2 interfaces.
