Hello,

I'm facing outdiscards error on the server connected interface.

Can anybody help me to fix this issue on Cisco 7609?

Hi Thiyagu,

Usually the Output drops represent egress traffic dropped due to momentarily exceeded wire capacity. It can be either traffic bursts or sustained high traffic rate.

1. Do you see the output drops on single interface which is connected to server?

2. Does the output drops incrementing constantly or intermittent?

could you share the below detail to understand this issue better

show version
show module
clear counters

Check the below commands multiple times and check the error status like how often it is incrementing and what type of errors seen on the interface


show interface <interface type>
show interfaces <
interface type> counters errors
show queueing interface <
interface type>

Regards,

Aru

Hi Thiyagu,

Packets dropped on Transmit:

    queue     dropped  [cos-map]

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

    1                    77319  [0 1 ] ---> This drops indicates the interface experienced oversubscription & dropping the packets

    2                        0  [2 3 4 ]

    3                        0  [6 7 ]

    4                        0  [5 ]

Please clear the counter and check the below commands,

show interface <interface type>
show interfaces <
interface type> counters errors
show interface | include line|drops|rx|tx

does the interface seeing continous drops or intermittent?

  • You can prevent output drops only if output drops are a consequence of short bursts of data. If output drops are caused by a constant high-rate flow, you cannot prevent the drops.
  • If the packets are coming in faster than going out, eventually you will have overflow. We forward the traffic in hardware level and the hardware buffer is fixed
  • Buffer tuning allows you to modify the way a switch allocates buffers from its available memory, and helps prevent packet drops during a temporary burst of traffic only.
