Many "packet drops" minitored on the trunk interface of CMS.
I have a question regards the CMS. There are so many packet drops(no total errors) on the packet drops & Error graphic for the all trunk ports even cannot find any error in the physical interface(show interface)
I configured 3550 switches(5EA) as follows,
- two VLANs that voice VLAN and data VLAN( 1 VTP server and 4 VTP client)
- 802.1q trunk on the uplink trunk port
- IOS, 12.1-12.EA1
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 x.x.x.x
switchport access vlan 2
switchport voice vlan 1
no ip address
mls qos trust cos
description Trunk to 10th_1
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport mode trunk
no ip address
The packet drop could be normal behavior from my configuration but I don't know why?
Re: Many "packet drops" minitored on the trunk interface of CMS.
The drops could be normal depending on your traffic patterns and volumes. If I read your configuration correctly, you have 24 ports going to 1 port. If all 24 ports are at 100meg and if more than half of them burst at "the same time", then your single gige port will be over subscribed and you have to potential for packet drops.
