4500 Gigabit input errors

When I do a show interface on a GigabitEthernet interface I am getting input errors with no other errors.

Any ideas what could cause the problem?

554273 packets input, 528085705 bytes, 0 no buffer

Received 84 broadcasts (0 multicast)

0 runts, 0 giants, 0 throttles

14 input errors, 0 CRC, 0 frame, 0 overrun, 0 ignored

0 input packets with dribble condition detected

413557 packets output, 59392742 bytes, 0 underruns

0 output errors, 0 collisions, 0 interface resets

0 babbles, 0 late collision, 0 deferred

0 lost carrier, 0 no carrier

0 output buffer failures, 0 output buffers swapped out


Re: 4500 Gigabit input errors

there are a few reasons a packet can be dropped and noted as an input error:

cable damage, cable removal/addition to port/interface, internal hardware failure, port/interface configuration to name a few...

try a different cable if these continue to persist.

i see that out of 554,000+ packets only 14 were dropped due to input error. (zero of these due to no buffer avaiable) this is a very small number and if it is not incrementing then i would not worry about it too much, could be the cable was removed/reinserted during operation. again, check the cable and replace if you see these incrementing.
