Can somebody tell me what does drop rate mean in "show traffic" command output? I looked up command reference document but that doesn't have any information. I am running 8.0.4 code.
1 minute input rate 1015 pkts/sec, 1063149 bytes/sec
1 minute output rate 1573 pkts/sec, 164636 bytes/sec
1 minute drop rate, 7 pkts/sec
5 minute input rate 0 pkts/sec, 0 bytes/sec
5 minute output rate 0 pkts/sec, 0 bytes/sec
5 minute drop rate, 0 pkts/sec
My question is, is drop rate because of buffer over flow, high traffic volume? OR simply because of firewall policy denying the packets? If its firewall policy that's dropping the packets, I am ok. Otherwise I would be concerned about the high drop rate.
