there is only 7 input errors. Does the count keep incrementing? If not, you don't need to worry about it.

Most input error is caused by cabling, NIC or port issue. Does "show interface f0/0 counter error" tell you anything?

The input errors are increasing at a rate of 1 or 2 a day. SRST is configure on it and I started losing the gateway for a few second in CUCM.

The command show interface f0/0 counter error does not give any output on a router.

Did you check input error to see if it incremented everytime when CUCM lost its gateway?

You might need to pay attention to "output drop", which has a big count.

Capture "show interface" every time after CUCM lose its gateway and compare those "input error" and "output drop" count to see which one is incrementing.
