Input queue drops/flushes on vlan interface

We have a 6500 w/ Sup 720 (12.2(18)SXD5,) in our data center, one of the vlan interfaces is receiving alot of input queue drops/flushes. It is only roughly 0.002% of the packets, and doesn't appear to be causing any major issues.

Increasing the queue from the default of 75 to 2000 didn't appear to have much affect (there was a slight decrease, but that could be just reduced traffic on the weekend). Showing the interface as quickly as possible, I can see the drops increment, yet I never see more than 25 packets in the queue at a time.

Anybody know a way to help determine what is getting dropped, or anything else to look at?

Re: Input queue drops/flushes on vlan interface

You have a lot of multicast traffic going on there and if that is not configured correctly all that multicast traffic will hit the cpu when that is running . Most normal traffic should never even hit the the CPU or SVI however you want to look at it as it is switched in hardware and never has to hit the cpu. We saw this on one of our boxes , also it will usually drive the cpu way up when the person is doing the multicast if multicast routing is not configured correctly. We could almost watch the input queues fill and drop the traffic when this guy started his ghost multicast on our network and it took us a while to find out who was doing it . . Just something to keep in mind .
