RX packets overrun for F5

Vendor

F5

Description

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

Remediation Steps

Packet overruns usually occur when there are too many packets being inserted into the port's memory buffer, faster than the rate at which the kernel is able to process them.

How does this work?

This alert logs into the F5 unit through the F5 iControl REST API and retrieves the metrics from all network interfaces. In that output, it looks for the number of packets received through the interface.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator could log into the device through SSH and execute the command "ifconfig -a" to see the statistics of each VLAN interface.
