I am trying to troubleshoot some network slowness behind a PIX 506E firewall running 6.3.3 This is the current "show interface" from the PIX and if I am reading this correctly the input queues are maxed for both interfaces. If that is the case is there anything I can do or are they hitting the limit of this model PIX? I am not very familiar with them to be honest. Thanks in advance for the responses:
interface ethernet0 "PUBLIC" is up, line protocol is up
Hardware is i82559 ethernet, address is 0012.43b6.2ccd
IP address 126.96.36.199, subnet mask 255.255.255.224
MTU 1500 bytes, BW 100000 Kbit full duplex
3996296 packets input, 2007993487 bytes, 0 no buffer
you can go ahead and still configure both interface to "auto" negotiation and see if that resolves the issue that you were having about the late collisions, in such a way the PIX will configure itself to the maximum speed of transmission that can be handled
