discarded packets on Gigastack

hi all,

I'v got 40 clusters with cat 3524 connecting with

gigastack, I notice at the Report/Port Statistics

at the line of the gigabitethernet a huge number of

"discarded packets", I check and change ports, gigastack but no change, the performaces are good.

any ideas???

thanks in advance,

Guy

Re: discarded packets on Gigastack

Discarded packets may happen because those packet's destination mac address is on the same segment where the packet came from. The gigastack connections behave like a hub, so if the switch receives a packet and the destination mac address was learned on the same interface, it discards the packet. There might not be any errors on the interface and this is not a problem, just the normal behavior of the switch.
