how to check packet loss on router

Hello,

I have to determine if packets are being lost between my IP cisco phones on one site to the call manager on other site through my cisco router.  What do I I do on the router to see if packets are being lost?

Thanks.

how to check packet loss on router

Hi Horacio,

The above show interface will give you only total output drops: 0
If you want to see packet loss between one end and other end you need to use any tool which provide you the network latency and packet loss.

Also you can run the below script which provide you the latency and packet drops.
Rune the below script from yoru one site to call manager which is at other site.


:22
ping *callmanagerip* -n 120 >>callmanagerip.txt
echo. |time >>callmanagerip.txt
goto 22

Hi,

You can try what others are suggested. But extended ping with 50 to 100 repeat count and 500 or 1000 datagram size and  would be a good test from router interface to your voice vlan. This would give you if there is any packet drops marked as dot(.)

Hope this helps

Please rate accordingly if it is helpful.

Hi Horacio,

When you run the script, it will do continues ping to your callmanagerip and get the output details in to notepad as "callmanagerip.txt
So that you can get to know the latency and packetloss to your callmanger.
