Output Drops

All,

 

I am experiencing Heavy output drops on my Cisco3945 Router interface.

Re: Output Drops

14680/61978541 = (about) .02 percent, which isn't generally considered a "heavy" drop percentage.

That said, you might have transient microbursts, and so increasing your output queue, from the default of 40, might mitigate your drops. NB: TCP looks for a buffer size based on the BDP (bandwidth delay product); usually you don't need to go beyond half of that for the router's interface.
