Hi Guys,

I am seeing a very high packet drops on the ASA interface. I have verified that duplex settings are fine and there are no errors on the interface. Any idea why these drops are coming

fw01# sh interface server

Interface Ethernet0/1.2 "server_vlan", is up, line protocol is up

VLAN identifier 2

MAC address 0019.e8c9.9795, MTU 1500

IP address, subnet mask

Traffic Statistics for "server_vlan":

6676111 packets input, 2364607982 bytes

6733501 packets output, 1795976764 bytes

159443 packets dropped

here we are seeing lot of dropped packets.

Best Regards

Thanks a lot for the useful command.I am having a quick query- the droped packets shows in interface status can be due to ACL restrcitions, NAT mismatch etc. Is there a possiblility that it could be due to some physical or device problem on the interface.

Best Regards
