packet drops due to throttle and no buffer

Unanswered Question
Dec 5th, 2008

Hi All,

Any traffic exiting one of our router in the network are getting packet drops. That router is the last hop in our network after that it enters our peerings network. On checking "show interface gigabitethernet" we found the throttle and no buffer counters are increasing.

Would like to know what is the cause for this issue and is there any CLI available to change the default value of buffer allocation in the router

hi arun

"no buffer"Indicates the router is out of memory or slowed down due to heavy

traffic and cannot keep up with the received data. check for the interface load and cpu & mem usage also.

one more thing u can check is the duplex setting on the router .
