Unanswered Question

Hi all, I have run a ping for the last few days over my wan links, it seems like every 1 or 2 hours it drops just one ping, is this acceptable?

I have this problem too.

I have seen links without any packet loss for days.

Its not normal but it would not much be a problem for the network. Droping a ping means there is some samll problem out there.

Please anyone can correct me if i am wrong.

Look at your WAN interface. If its serial0/0 for example, do a show interface s0/0 . Look for input errors, output errors, dropped packets, and bandwitch utilization. What's more important than 1 lost packet lost every 2 hours is the response times.

Ping for a minute. My response times right now are 12ms for a comparison.

I don't really thinks its a big deal.
