I run a network powered by 3750G. Network consists of several points of presence with several switches in each. POPs are xconnected with fibers.
I hvanoticed that some fiber ports start to loose packets on low bitrate (100M). Closer inspection showed that packet rate is much bigger (40000 Pps).
I found it accaptable since nature of data is multicast with packets of 500-700 bytes average.
For most of ports packet loss starts when PPs reaches ~83000. While there is a port where I see packet loss on 40k in each direction.
So I have two questions:
1. Is it a practical top of switch port throughput ? Looks weird when switch looses packets on 100Mbps utilisation;
2. My understanding is that Tx and Rx are woring with its own buffers each. Thus overflow of one of them shouldn't impact the other. But practically I see that Tx and Rx packet rates are affecting buffer in total.
I'm starting to feel like something is misconfigured. Please advice.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
