Last Updated:

Applies to

  • FAS 9000


  • One node in the HA pair increments Transmit "total discards" in ifstat counters:

-- interface  e4a  (113 days, 23 hours, 48 minutes, 44 seconds) --
Total frames:    11430m | Frames/second:    1161  | Total bytes:     44516g
Bytes/second:     4519k | Total errors:        0  | Errors/minute:       0
Total discards:  20284k | Queue overflow:      4  | Multi/broadcast:  1371k 

-- interface  e4a  (116 days, 13 hours, 29 minutes, 18 seconds) --

Total frames:    11557m | Frames/second:    1148  | Total bytes:     44742g
Bytes/second:     4442k | Total errors:        0  | Errors/minute:       0
Total discards:  21172k | Queue overflow:      4  | Multi/broadcast:  1375k 

  • One of the connected switchports increments RX input error and giant frames equally:
1448904333 unicast packets  8789 multicast packets  719 broadcast packets
1448913841 input packets  9504298993893 bytes
1050351631 jumbo packets  0 storm suppression packets
0 runts  558 giants  0 CRC  0 no buffer                                          
558 input error  0 short frame  0 overrun   0 underrun  0 ignored
