Input queue drops

I have a 7206VXR [ NPE-400] running 12.0(16)S8. I am experiecing rather abnormally high input queue drops on a transit network connected to one of the fast ethernets

This is affecting network performance as am seeing so many packet drops.

What could be wrong ?

Here is a sample output captured after 7 minutes of doing clear counters on the interface

gw1#show int fa4/1

FastEthernet4/1 is up, line protocol is up

Hardware is i82543 (Livengood), address is 0008.e260.0871 (bia 0008.e260.0871)

Re: Input queue drops

What is the configuration of the interface? Is Fast-Swiching or CEF enabled. Is the router having to process switch every packet for some reason.

Post the configuration of the interface.

A simple way to correct *may* be to increase the size of the input queue in the case of bursty traffic like IPX.

Re: Input queue drops

below is the interface config, increase of the input queue depth , doesnt help either

interface FastEthernet4/1

ip address 195.202.69.60 255.255.255.192

no ip directed-broadcast

speed 100

full-duplex

no cdp enable

!

Re: Input queue drops

You might try changing your queuing from fifo to weighted-fair.

That has helped solve some packet drops for me.

Still getting the drops

Re: Input queue drops

Hi.

I don't think that changing the queuing will solve input queue drops!

What's your CPU load?
