interface input counters ??????

GigabitEthernet0/1 is up, line protocol is up (connected)
  Hardware is Gigabit Ethernet, address is 0011.5c75.2a71 (bia 0011.5c75.2a71)
  MTU 1500 bytes, BW 1000000 Kbit, DLY 10 usec,
     reliability 255/255, txload 1/255, rxload 1/255
  Encapsulation ARPA, loopback not set
  Keepalive set (10 sec)
  Full-duplex, 1000Mb/s, media type is SX
  input flow-control is off, output flow-control is off
  ARP type: ARPA, ARP Timeout 04:00:00
  Last input 00:00:00, output 00:00:01, output hang never
  Last clearing of "show interface" counters 00:23:46
  Input queue: 0/75/0/0 (size/max/drops/flushes); Total output drops: 0
  Queueing strategy: fifo
  Output queue: 0/40 (size/max)
  5 minute input rate 4348000 bits/sec, 16 packets/sec
  5 minute output rate 3369000 bits/sec, 858 packets/sec
     22967 packets input, 1029143199 bytes, 0 no buffer
     Received 22970 broadcasts (19240 multicast)
     0 runts, 0 giants, 0 throttles
     0 input errors, 0 CRC, 0 frame, 0 overrun, 0 ignored

Am I missing something here in the explanation:

1029143199 bytes divide by 22967 packets = 44Kbytes roughly

Wireshark shows average on 700 Bytes

Also, the 19240multicast out of 22967 makes no sense at all ( as per sniffer)

or if we look at it the other way 4348000 bits/sec divide by 8 and divide by 16 packets/sec = roughly 34K

Thanks for helping

Hi,

You want to have bandwidth calculation for this interface, If yes then try with below example

As you know 

1 byte (B) = 8 bits (b)

1 Kilobit (Kb) = 1024 bits
1 Megabit (Mb) = 1024 Kb or 1,048,576 bits  ect.

So 10,000 packets per second of 64 byte packets (don't forget to calculate your CRC on top of that that adds 4 bytes, so it is really 68 bytes) is as follows;


68 bytes x 8 = 544 bits
10000 packets per second x 544 bits per packet = 5,440,000 bits per second
5440000 bits per second / 1024 bits per kilobits = 5,312.5 Kbps
5312.5 Kbps /1024 Kb/Mb = 5.18798828125 Mbps

and for multicast packets on this interface can packets moving between the switch ports for stp also.

Hope to Help !!

Hi:

Thanks for trying but you are not answering the question at all.

Read the comments after the show interface
