xmit-err on all ports of my 2948g

I have two WS-C2948G-GE-TX (10/100/1000) switches that runs CAT OS and they BOTH show xmit-err on ALL copper ports. There are very few rcv-err, if any. Fiber ports are fine. I'm running the following version:

WS-C2948G-GE-TX Software, Version NmpSW: 8.2(1)GLX

I can't believe I have bad switches since errors show up on both. And I can't believe cables are bad because all the port have errors...even hard coded 1G/Full duplex switch-to-switch cross over ports have errors. What's going on?


Re: xmit-err on all ports of my 2948g

Probably cosmetic or you have someone who might be infected that is broadcasting out every port and over running the transmit buffers . Doubt it is a operational switch problem.

Re: xmit-err on all ports of my 2948g

That's what I suspect as well... the counter triggers are too sensitive and recording false positives. But how can I be sure? What tests can I run to proof that it's not causing any issues? Thansk.
