CRC and Input errors on WS-C2960-24TT-L

Hi,

I am not sure why the CRC and input errors are increasing in fastethernet port...This port is used as Intradomain cross connect to Data Center service provider for LAN extension between two Data Centers in different locations... The link is 100 MB. The switch port is directly connected to patch panel of DC provider and I believe they have some L3 switch or some other device that is providing LAN extension...

I am just wondering what could be the possible causes to look into....

Thanks,

Sal

CRC and Input errors on WS-C2960-24TT-L

CRC

Indicates that the cyclic redundancy checksum generated by the originating LAN station or far-end device does not match the checksum calculated from the data received. On a LAN, this usually indicates noise or transmission problems on the LAN interface or the LAN bus itself. A high number of CRCs is usually the result of collisions or a station transmitting bad data.

  bus itself. A high number of CRCs is usually the result of collisions or a station
  transmitting bad data.

  1 : Check cables to determine whether any are damaged.
  2.  There have been 6861 'input errors' reported.

  This indicates the number of packets received incorrectly, having a CRC error

  and a non-integer number of octets. On a LAN, this is usually the result of collisions

  or a malfunctioning Ethernet device.

3: Monitor the level of frame errors over time. If they are increasing,

  try swapping interfaces and or ports to identify the problem.

Re: CRC and Input errors on WS-C2960-24TT-L

Have you tested the cable that is connecting this port to the ASA?  Also make sure that the duplex and speed settings match on both ends.  Last thing you can try is change the port and see if the errors go away.
