We have a router, getting a 100 mg feed, which are mulitcast traffic. When I check the interface, input queue size is 0, and it never builds up, but time to time it just drops packets and "drops" counter goes up.
Input queue: 0/4096/511609/39 (size/max/drops/flushes); Total output drops: 0
That's normal on a multicast interface as the traffic is bursty by design.
To address some of your concerns:
1) the input queue size is 0 (minimum value)
2) the input queue size is 4096 (maximum value)
Those are the first 2 values in that line (that's your window). You can modify the maximum value with the hold-queue [value] in under the interface. However, I don't see the need for that as you currently have the max.
The other 2 values are self-explanatory.
That's the nature of multicast, it's up to the application to resend the multicast stream that was dropped, if needed.
