Matching errors on DS3 Frame Relay Interface.

I'm getting the following errors on the WAN interface. The errors increase even during times of low traffic usage. Is this normal for a DS3 interface? Sho interface is below. The input, crc and overunn errors match. The output and underrun

Re: Matching errors on DS3 Frame Relay Interface.


this is not normal for a DS3 interface.

as you expect, all zeros for those errors are what should be seen in a good/normal operation scenario.

since there are zero carrier transitions, it is likely due to a problem on the line. ie: bad coax termination; bad coax cable; problem on line between your site and telco, etc.

i would call the telco and verify all your DS3 parameters as well as perform testing of the circuit if these continue.

(crc can be caused by misconfiguration, dropped packets, clocking issues, framing issues, line coding...)
