Interface Output Drops

A large number of output drops seen on interface gi1/0/2 of a 3750 (12.2.52SE code). The output of show buffers show misses in the big buffers pool
more than others.

Additionally, the port-asic indicate the drops are seen on queue 3 weight 2.

The interface is configured as a simple trunk with no qos. Qos is disabled on the switch. Please advise.

Interface Output Drops

Post the outputs to the following commands:

1.  sh interface G1/0/2; and

2.  sh controll e G1/0/2

What is the downstream client connected to G1/0/2?

This is connected to a 5540 firewall.

Interface Output Drops

I don't see any line issues.

Two potential things:

1.  IOS bug:  Possibly.  I wouldn't recommend anyone running the IOS your switch is currently using.  If you ask me, I'd recommend 12.2(55)SE8.

2.  Switch buffer overflow:  High possibility.  Catalyst switch are known to have very shallow memory buffer.  High speed servers, for example, if connected without any QoS will exhibit high output drops.  You could test this by downgrading the speed of the switchport to 100 Mbps, using the command "speed auto 100", and see if output drops increment.  If they don't then you'll need to enable QoS.  Don't forget to put the speed up to 1 Gbps when you're done testing.
