Transmit Discards

Hi all

 

I have high transmit errors during the busy morning period on a uplink to the VPLS network. I have checked the switch and it is showing the output below.

The utilization on the uplink is only 50% or so. I am a little lost, does anyone have any advice which may help me resolve this issue?

Is it possible to turn off the qos on this interface for 5 minutes live without bring the network or interface down?  just to test?

I don't see any line errors,

I don't see any line errors, however, this interface is showing a significant amount of "Total output drops".  

 

This means that whatever is connected to this port is dropping packets like crazy.  

 

If this is your ISP, then I'm suspecting your ISP has some kind of traffic policing policy instead of a traffic SHAPING policy.  You may need to create traffic shaping so you don't drop packets.

It is going out to the VPLS

It is going out to the VPLS network. However I thought that it might be an overly aggressive qos policy at our end?

Hall of Fame Super Gold

I'm not a QoS "kinda guy".

I'm not a QoS "kinda guy".  Joseph is one of THE QoS guys here in the forum.  

 

If this was an "aggressive QoS" then you'd see less output drops.  I could be wrong, but QoS won't work here.  You'll need to configure traffic shaping policy.  In Traffic shaping policy you could, for example, say that what goes down the link is 98% of a specified bandwidth.
