We recently installed our UCS chasis running ESX and the 1000v. I was just wondering if it is normal to see high amounts of discards on most of the 1000v interfaces? Everything seems to be working fine, its just something we noticed while monitoring the 1000v via SNMP.
The uplink profile is configured as a port-channel and that is applied to all 8 ESX servers. We are not intentionally doing any mac-pinning, unless that is the default behavior for the 1000v with port-channels.
Hey JMS, saw yoor post via a Google query. I have noticed the same thing using Solarwinds to monitor the Nexus. 21 Million packets dropped in 8 hours. All the nexus 1000v uplink ports are the ones discarding the traffic. I wonder why? Have you been able to find out any more on this. If you find out something can you pass it on to this former bubblehead? Thanks.
I have a similar issue, using vPC with mac-pinning on the 1KV.
From what I can tell, the symptoms seem to follow what Munish suggested. No actual performance impact, etc... although it does throw a little bit of a wrench into interpreting interface statistics on the DVS when troubleshooting.
