Multiplexing and packet loss

Unanswered Question
Apr 20th, 2009


I have a 1gbit (1000BaseZX) link between two sites that's, due to large number of small packets, have alot of buffer related packet loss in one direction. A solution I'm planning to implement is CWDM on this link and team at least four interfaces into an etherchannel. I'm however unsure if this will actually solve any of the packer loss problems. In theory four interface buffers should be better than one but I wounder if anyone have any real world data on this. Will a CWDM etherchannel only move the buffer problems from the interface to the etherchannel buffer?



I have this problem too.
