I am having error "CrcAlign-Err" on WS-C4948 port

I am working on WS-C4948 and I have notice that when I run *sh interface ... I am having the following error

#sh interface gigabitEthernet 1/48
GigabitEthernet1/48 is up, line protocol is up (connected)
Hardware is Gigabit Ethernet Port, address is 0017.......f (bia 0017.e0cf.c9ef)

.............................................

I have also ran the following command

*sh int gigabitEthernet 1/48 coun errors

Port CrcAlign-Err Dropped-Bad-Pkts Collisions Symbol-Err
Gi1/48 154343 0 0 0

Port Undersize Oversize Fragments Jabbers
Gi1/48 0 0 2 0

Port Single-Col Multi-Col Late-Col Excess-Col
Gi1/48 0 0 0 0

Port Deferred-Col False-Car Carri-Sen Sequence-Err
Gi1/48 0 0 0 0

 

 

So my question is

1) I limited the allowed vlan from all to allowing certain VLANs but Broadcast did not change.

2)when I can say that I have high broadcast? and how can I reduce it?

3)how can I fix the above error (CrcAlign-Err )? I have different MTU on both side the specified port is connected to Nexus 5596 do you think that would cause the error or both ports will negotiate ?

 

 

Thank you

1) I limited the allowed vlan from (switchport allow all) to (switchport allow vlan .....certain VLANs) but Broadcast number did not change. why?

before you can answer that you need to understand where the broadcasts are coming from , are they legitimate what vlan etc , use wireshark , a bad NIC can constantly flood them out . Limiting vlans doesn't mean you have stopped broadcasts or prevented them , they could be mostly coming from 1 vlan , you dont know until you investigate it

2)when I can say that I have high broadcast? and how can I reduce it?
Again this his can depend multiple things , how big the vlan is how many hosts etc are on it ,what type of application traffic is being sent across the network , could be broadcast or multicast , could be NIC issues

Bad patch cable.

Hi,
Totally agree with WhiskeySixRadio +5

Exam fibre connections in the path and clean them.

Thank you for the quick reply. how about the following questions:

2)when I can say that I have high broadcast? and how can I reduce it?

Thank you Mark for the explanation and the link. I don't know how to use Wireshark but I have to learn it.

CRC = Layer 1 issue.
1. Replace the optics of both sides;
If problem still occurs,
2. Replace the patch cable of both sides

Thank you All and I really appreciate your help.
