Late Collissions - Ethernet 0 Interface 1721 Router

Hello ,

I have been observing high amount of Late Collisions on Ethernet 0 interface for a Cisco 1721 Router (LOL EOL for sure )

The internet line terminates on the interface

#sh int e0

6640 output errors, 5677 collisions, 0 interface resets

0 babbles, 6454 late collision, 10467 deferred

#sh controllers | i single

4304 single collisions, 1373 multiple collisions

For LAN Access ,the router has GRE IPSec Tunnels which forms EIGRP Neighborship with Remote end Router

Due to this issue , lately the GRE IPsec Tunnels flaps causing EIGRP Neighborship to get disrupted often resulting in connectivity loss

As late collssions can mostly be caused by Duplex mismatch , I checked the duplex settings and that seems to be fine

(https://supportforums.cisco.com/thread/9246)

1. The LAN has around 200 nodes connected via Fa0 intreface , Can the Speed mismatch ( 10Mbps and 100 Mbps ) cause bottle necks and be the reason for Late collissions ?

2. Are Late collissions bad ?

3. What are the options ahead of me to try and resolve this issue ?

Please Help !

Anup

No.  Speed mismatch gives you CRC or FCS.  Collisions, as a whole, means you're interface is set up for HALF duplex.

Post the complete output to the command "sh interface ".

Ethernet0?  I believe this interface can only negotiate HALF duplex.

Hi Leo ,

It 's Half Duplex itself !

Sorry I checked the Fa0 port and found it to be Full Duplex

For E0
