Output Error and Output Drop

Hi

Can someone explain the different between "output error" and "output drop" from show interface command

I'm a lot of output errors in my ethernet interface and output error and output drop are caused by some buffer queue issue and I confused...

Thanks

Re: Output Error and Output Drop

Hi,

The output drops appear whenever system is attempting to hand off a packet to the transmit buffer but no buffers are available. This can happen due to improper queuing done. You can increse output hold queue ( hold-queu out ) interface config command to increae the queue size.

Output Errors - Sum of all errors that prevented the final transmission.
