Is there an interface error chart explaining the possible cause of each?

Hello, is there a chart of some sort that explaining all the attributes in the "show interface gig x/x"? command:

     12627282818 packets input, 13956410964813 bytes, 0 no buffer

     Received 75789 broadcasts (75035 multicasts)
     0 runts, 0 giants, 0 throttles
     0 input errors, 0 CRC, 0 frame, 0 overrun, 0 ignored
     0 watchdog, 75035 multicast, 0 pause input
     0 input packets with dribble condition detected
     11978362642 packets output, 14652129899933 bytes, 0 underruns
     0 output errors, 0 collisions, 0 interface resets
     0 babbles, 0 late collision, 0 deferred
     0 lost carrier, 0 no carrier, 0 PAUSE output
     0 output buffer failures, 0 output buffers swapped out


I understand that that Runts are frames recieved under 64 bytes, Giants over 1518 bytes, but why?  For example late collisions are normally duplex issues, cable issue or length of cable...

I am just lookig for something so I can do a lookup if I get any of the errors above (runts, giants, throttles, CC, watchdog, babbles, etc)

This table explains them all.

Maybe this page helps with troubleshooting.
