You will need to provide more

You will need to provide more information like logs, diagram with port detail, existing spanning configuration etc. Also the issue is with all traffic on access switch or is with any particular VLAN. The packet drops are continues or intermittent then what is time ratio?

There could be many reasons like layer 2 loop, STP, port fluctuation, collusion, or cable or interface issue, even can’t eliminate any of host system is virus infected.

Happy to help

Please find the network

Please find the network diagram. In 2960 Stack Switch, when Gi 1/0/50 uplink is removed, everything is working fine.When both Gi 1/0/49 & Gi 1/0/50 both are connect, huge packet drop is happening.I reconfigured the entire Stack and everything worked fine with 2 uplinks for 2 days, but now the same issue is facing with huge packet loss.

1.  Plain 2960/2960G or 2960S/X/XR?  Which is which?  

2.  What IOS are you switch/switch stack running? 

3.  Did you enable Etherchannel?  If not , why not?
