Extended counter showing errors

Hi,

I have a 10yr HP blade system that seems to be having issues but need help narrowing down the the exact cause.

Sh Counters int gx/xx

** output omitted**

32 bit counters

10.                      ifOutDiscards = 3239159085

All port counters

24.                      ifOutDiscards = 3239159085

51.                        qos1Outlost = 3239159083

What can I look for to find the culprit?

How can I clear these counters? I tried Clear extended counters but that did not work.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Sudip,

The above counters cannot be cleared. Do you see input queue drops,output drops, CRC/ input errors incrementing on the interface connecting the HP blade system ? ( under the show int <> command ). You will need to troubleshoot the issue depending on the counter which increments.

qos1Outlost counter signifies that less prioritized traffic is being dropped and logged under the counter for that queue. Do you have QoS configured on that interface ? If yes, check for QoS drops under the command "show queueing int <>". You may have to increase the resources available for QoS on that interface.

Hi Chaitra,

Under sho int, i do see the output drops:

  Input queue: 0/2000/0/0 (size/max/drops/flushes); Total output drops: 35544

These are the QoS settings we have aon the interface, which queue would need to be modified?

Hi Sudip,

The output drops seen on the interface is same as the QoS drops seen on Queue 2 :

  Input queue: 0/2000/0/0 (size/max/drops/flushes); Total output drops:  35544

    queue     dropped  [cos-map]

     ---------------------------------------------

     1                        0  [1 ]

   2                    35544   [0 ]

    3                        0  [4 2 3 6 7 ]

     4                        0  [5 ]

So you need to look at queue 2.
