We are getting the following alarm often:
VENT ID = 00000ZI
ALERT ID = 00000U6
TIME = Wed 09-Apr-2008 08:48:23 PDT
STATUS = Active
SEVERITY = Critical
MANAGED OBJECT = 172.16.XXX.XXX
MANAGED OBJECT TYPE = Routers
EVENT DESCRIPTION = HighQueueDropRate::Component=IF-172.16.XXX.XXX/5 [Fa2/0] [172.16.XXX.XXX];ComponentClass=Interface;ComponentEventCode=1053;Type=ETHERNETCSMACD;OutputPacketQueueDropPct=0.0 %;MaxSpeed=100000000;OutputPacketQueueDropRate=0.0 PPS;OutputPacketNoErrorRate=131.05 PPS;QueueDropThreshold=2;InputPacketQueueDropPct=2.6405654 %;InputPacketNoErrorRate=147.02083 PPS;DuplexMode=FULLDUPLEX;InputPacketQueueDropRate=3.9875 PPS;
There is not a big spike of traffic, and there are no ACL's on this interface to shape the traffic. We are typically getting thes alerts at night or on weekends when the traffic is light.
Is our threshold set low or is there really a problem?
