TX packets dropped 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 drops usually occur when the rate of packets transmitted is higher than the device ability to handle.

How does this work?

This alert logs into the F5 unit through SSH and retrieves the status of all VLAN interfaces. In that output, it looks for the number of packets transmitted through the interface.

Why is this important?

This alert logs into the F5 unit through SSH and retrieves the status of all VLAN interfaces. In that output, it looks for the number of packets transmitted 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.
