reliability 255/255, txload 1/255, rxload 1/255

Unanswered Question
Feb 26th, 2007

I can't seem to find the meaning of the following parameters when the sh int command is performed: reliability 255/255, txload 1/255, rxload 1/255..

Can someone please shed the light on it?

Thanks.

I have this problem too.

It's kind of a rough scale of the condition of the interface.

Reliability 255/255= 100% up and reliable

128/255 = 50% up and not-so reliable

txload 1/255 = 0-4% of traffic is coming from transmitted info. 128/255 would mean 50%of traffic is coming from transmitted info.

rxload is the same as tx except it's received data.

These values are kind of a high level dashboard on what the intreface is doing in regards to traffic. EIGRP Metrics are designed to use the reliability information, but is rarely imlemented.

FROM CISCO

Reliability of the interface as a fraction of 255 (255/255 is 100 percent reliability), calculated as an exponential average over 5 minutes.

txload/rxload=Load on the interface as a fraction of 255 (255/255 is completely saturated), calculated as an exponential average over 5 minutes.
