What's the best way to interpret the show interfaces output, specifically the reliability, txload and rxload statistics.
In my situation I'm trying to get an accurate picture of link utilization but I keep getting very disparate results. I've noticed that on the web dashboard on one of my switches, a few of the ports are always showing 100% utilized on either tx or rx. When I look at the 'show interfaces' output I see the txload/rxload hovering in the low percentages, but occasionally spikes to 255/255 for a brief moment. My SNMP management tool never sees the traffic going over 4-8% of the link speed.
