I have just introduced a L3 switch into my network. this switch does the routing for 4 different subnets via vlans. I have been experiencine lots of packet latency and loss. It is not contstant but every few minutes I see lots of packets ranging from 150ms to 900ms.
I have checked the ports and the txload and the rxload. Below is the output of my command: show interface FastEthernet 0/2
I have also inserted a picture of my Dell Powerconnect switch that is hooked up to my Catalyst. Is there something special I should do to connect the two. I noticed that my catalyst is using Full-Duplex 100Mb/s and my switch is using a 1000M, but shoudl that 1000M downgrade to 100M? My servers are mostly 100M too.

[toc:faq]The ProblemOn traditional switches whenever we have a trunk
interface we use the VLAN tag to demultiplex the VLANs. The switch needs
to determine which MAC Address table to look in for a forwarding
decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
[toc:faq]Introduction:Netdr is a tool available on a RSP720, Sup720 or
Sup32 that allows one to capture packets on the RP or SP inband. The
netdr command can be used to capture both Tx and Rx packets in the
software switching path. This is not a substitut...
IntroductionOSPF, being a link-state protocol, allows for every router
in the network to know of every link and OSPF speaker in the entire
network. From this picture each router independently runs the Shortest
Path First (SPF) algorithm to determine the b...
