Hi

The Q count field is the number of EIGRP packets (updates, replies and queries) that the router is waiting to send. If you have a Q cnt greater than 0 it means your router is not receiving acknowledgements for the packets it is sending.

This could be transitory due to a congested link etc. What is more important is

Do you see the Q cnt going down at all ?

Is there a figure in the SRTT field ?

And are you seeing the neighborship with the other router going down at all.

If you are seeing any of these symptoms you need to look at link itself between these routers.

hi,

Q - Number of EIGRP packets (update, query, and reply) that the software is waiting to send.

The Q count indiactes number of enqueued packets.If an EIGRP update, query or reply is sent, a copy of the packet will be queued.If thr RTO expires before an ACK is received , another copy of the queued packet is sent.

Hope it helps you.
