I know the title is vague so I will do my best to describe things. We all strive to get no errors. I take great pleasure when doing a sh int co er, and get nothing but zeros. It makes that 7am cup of coffee taste just that much better. Even when getting a few xmit and rcv or out discards or runt errors, here and there, will not bother me much. When I say a few, I mean less than 20 in a 24 hr period, while for runts and fcs errors, less than 10. But of the errors I listed above, what threshold constitutes a red flag? The previous admin's threshold was 1000. That seems pretty high to me, but being the young gun, my experience pales in comparison.
Is there a generally accepted baseline of the numbers of errors an interface would have on a "normal" day? I am only seeing 3 or 4 interfaces a day that have any errors, and they are attached to proprietary (read finicky) DNA sequencers. The data transfers fine. I am just wondering.
PS Sorry if I didn't thin out the mud enough
