For the first time I'm receiving WAN connectivity via a FastEthernet hand off from the ISP's Router (26xx) at my premise.
I'm used to dealing with WAN circuits terminating directly on my router (1841). I'm also used to measuring the load on my circuit by viewing the tx and rx load from the "sh int s0/0" output.
Does the fact that i'm using a FastEthernet handoff render the tx and rx load section of the "sh int f0/0" command useless?
It also works but the load is normally really low or actually 1/255
My suggestion is to keep the load-interval (interval for load calculation for an interface) in something like 30 sec and then monitor the
30 second input rate 0 bits/sec, 0 packets/sec
30 second output rate 0 bits/sec, 0 packets/sec
Look at the rates and make your own baseline or normal traffic rates
