We recently started monitoring a customer that has some serious "buffer misses" issues. We use Solarwinds to monitor the routers, switches, and access points. I noticed a couple of switches a one of the locations had over 500,000 buffer misses in one day. I will attach a text file that shows the amount of buffer misses throughout the different devices on the network.
One thing to note - The IOS on the switches are the original ones that shipped with the switches and are about 6 years old. How much do IOS upgrades fix buffer misses, or do I just need to 'tune' the buffers? Also, I don't see any packet loss either. Most of the switches are 2900's with 8MB RAM.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
