Acceptable percentage of MAC layer errors

Hello All,

I am looking for a percentage of "acceptable" MAC layer errors. When analyzing a LAN segment, you divide the total number of frames by the total number of MAc layer errors, which yields the percentage of MAC layer errs. My question is, what is the threshold here for acceptability? Is it 1%, 0.1%, for example?

Thanks.

Re: Acceptable percentage of MAC layer errors

If you mean fcs errors runts jabbers, it should be well under 0.1% or you will get connectivity problems, collitions degrade performance noticable when the will go over 1%, Acollition should be detected and corrected at layer2, the other error frames will be dropped and left to be corrected at layer 4 if you used protocol supports this.
