Re: Then meaning of couple logg messages

The meaning of the message can be found at:

the text of which is:

"Error Message SYS-3-PORT_ERR: Port [dec]/[dec] [chars] ([dec])

Explanation This message indicates that a port error has been detected. [dec]/[dec] is the module number/port number, [chars] is the port counter name, and ([dec]) is the counter value.

Recommended Action Contact your technical support representative. "

The RxLengthErrorDrop and RxInnerCRCErrorDrop parameters relate to SNMP counters

A quick look at the 6.3 release notes shows a known bug causing RxInnerCRCErrorDrop counts:


If a duplex mismatch occurs on an ISL trunk into a Catalyst 5000 family switch, you will see swBusCRCErrorDrop errors on all ports, and you will see RxInnerCRCErrorDrop errors on ports with the duplex mismatch. This mismatch results in dropped traffic between buses.

This problem is resolved in software release 6.3(6). (CSCdw11398)"
