"pause input" on C10K connecting to Cat4507R

Hi Sir,

A Catalyst 4507R is directly connected to a Cisco 10008's interface Gi1/1/0. "sh int gi1/1/0" on the C10K is as follows:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GigabitEthernet1/1/0 is up, line protocol is up

Hardware is Half-height Gigabit Ethernet MAC Controller, address is 001d.a269.8d24 (bia 001d.a269.8d24)

Description: *** Connection to Catalyst 4507R ***

Internet address is 2.1.1.67/27

MTU 1500 bytes, BW 1000000 Kbit, DLY 10 usec,

reliability 255/255, txload 87/255, rxload 16/255

Encapsulation ARPA, loopback not set

Keepalive set (10 sec)

Full Duplex, 1000Mbps, 1000BaseSX, Auto-negotiation, media type is SX

output flow-control is XOFF, input flow-control is XOFF

ARP type: ARPA, ARP Timeout 04:00:00

Last input 00:00:05, output 00:00:00, output hang never

Last clearing of "show interface" counters never

Input queue: 0/4096/0/0 (size/max/drops/flushes); Total output drops: 0

Interface GigabitEthernet1/1/0 queueing strategy: PXF Class-based

5 minute input rate 65216000 bits/sec, 44622 packets/sec

5 minute output rate 344833000 bits/sec, 47251 packets/sec

13753696 packets input, 827763454 bytes, 0 no buffer

Received 1240021 broadcasts (0 IP multicasts)

0 runts, 0 giants, 0 throttles

0 input errors, 0 CRC, 0 frame, 0 overrun, 0 ignored

0 watchdog, 1240015 multicast, 241410137 pause input

1510948108 packets output, 3359148857 bytes, 0 underruns

0 output errors, 0 collisions, 1 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 notice a high number of "pause input". Please advise what to configure on the Cat4507R's port to reduce this.

Thank you.

Try turning off flowcontrol on the 4k interface.

Hi Ryan,

Below is "sh int" on 4507R's interface connecting to the C10K:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GigabitEthernet3/6 is up, line protocol is up (connected)

Hardware is Gigabit Ethernet Port, address is 0017.958b.bf2b (bia 0017.958b.bf2b)

Description: *** Connection to Cisco 10008 Gi1/1/0 ***

MTU 1500 bytes, BW 1000000 Kbit, DLY 10 usec,

reliability 255/255, txload 17/255, rxload 87/255

Encapsulation ARPA, loopback not set

Keepalive set (10 sec)

Full-duplex, 1000Mb/s, link type is auto, media type is 1000BaseSX

input flow-control is on, output flow-control is on

ARP type: ARPA, ARP Timeout 04:00:00

Last input never, output never, output hang never

Last clearing of "show interface" counters never

Input queue: 0/2000/0/0 (size/max/drops/flushes); Total output drops: 0

Queueing strategy: fifo

Output queue: 0/40 (size/max)

0 input packets with dribble condition detected

0 output errors, 0 collisions, 0 interface resets

0 babbles, 0 late collision, 0 deferred

0 lost carrier, 0 no carrier

0 output buffer failures, 0 output buffers swapped out

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

By disabling flow control, will it cause input error counters to increase?

Thank you.

Re: "pause input" on C10K connecting to Cat4507R

It certainly could - it depends how much traffic you're pushing. The 4k is trying to flowcontrol the neighboring device for a reason. :) If you do see input errors, that may be an indication you're pushing too much traffic over this interface.
