Packet drops !!!!!!

Hi Nithin,

The packets from the Router to the System is transit traffic for the Switch. This transit traffic would be forwarded in Hardware on the Switch and would not hit the CPU. But the packets from the router to the switch management IP is handled by the CPU of the Switch as it is directed to the Switch.

Now if the CPU utilistion is high or if there is COPP/rate limiters protecting the CPU on the switch then there are high chances of the packets to get dropped.

So kindly check the same on the Switch & that might help you resolve the issue.

if you are using 3560 for l2 purpose only then diable ip routing on that switch.

Hi,

Pls ensure ip default-gateway command is present on switch as you are not suing "ip routing"
