Troubleshooting Packet Loss

Hi experts,

 

We have difficulties to troubleshoot our intermittent call drop issue at one remote site (remote site 1). IPT was deployed to this site recently with IP Phone 7821 and C9300. The users said call drop happens when callling to specific office (remote site 2).  We found both peer are IP hone 7821. We have upgraded 7821 firmware, replaced network switch and SCCP IP phone but in vain. Our IPT vendor captured packet and observe there should be something wrong in host site 1 network (please refer to the attachment). 

 

Can you please advise how to easily troubleshooting and finding out solution for this case? We have some limitations on our infrastructure and business nature. 

 

Thanks.

Post the complete output to the command "sh interface <WAN port>" of remote site 1.

Hi,

 

I posted our 3 routers' interface information, fa0/0/0 is the WAN interface. Thx.

I'm not opening any RTF in a zip file.
Post the RTF files here.

What is RTR1? Look at Fa0/1. Look at the huge amount of "input errors". That's where the problem is. Look at the ratio between the input packets and the "input error". Now look at the "Full-Duplex" and "100Mb/s".
The cause is due to duplex mismatch error.
Look at the config for Fa 0/1 and see if duplex and speed are hard-coded. If it is, take them off.
NOTE:
I'm actually surprised that voice was their only complaint.  EVERYTHING would've been slow.  Everything.

Hi,

RTR1, RTR2, and RTR3 are showing input or output drops as RTR2 and RTR3 are having gig port but it is working on FastEthernet. I am not sure that it is your next hope hardware limitation or manually it assigned to 100-Full Duplex. Is it speed and duplex mismatch? Have you applied any QoS?

 

Other drops are looking as "Unknown Protocol Drop" but currently, I am not considering as critical because this port may be connected to the router/switch and remote device will not understand many protocols as DTP, VTP, etc.

Hi,

Thanks for your hints. Our carrier has correct the interface speed & duplex mismatch issue and there is no more huge input error. However, our remote site 1 user are still complaining call drop.

 

I just did a deeper trace - I found packet loss even ping from Remote Site 1 switch to the IP phone x8081 but the interface gi1/0/12 cable test is normal. I think there is something wrong in Remote Site 1. What is your thought?

 

When pinging from Host Site 1 to Remote Site 2 phone x8084, there was no packet loss.

Wait ... That doesn't make any sense.
The phone is directly connected to the switch. And if the switch pings the phone there are packet drops?
No way. That really doesn't make any sense.

Hi,

As I am understanding that there is a drop on the local site network as Gateway to Phone. This means something is not good in the local LAN at the remote site. Is there any drop from the switch to Phone?

 

Can you confirm a few things:

  1. Any CPU/memory high utilization of router/switch?
  2. Any interface issue or cable issue? Can you replace cable from the switch to the phone or router to switch? Once, We noticed in my office that cable testing was showing no issue with the cable but flood testing was shown a huge drop in the singles due to one IO-BOX installation method. So, try to check with connect a phone directly to the switch.
  3. Is your Phone 10/100 or 1000 Mbps? If your switch is  1Gbps and phone support to 100Mbps then check with speed and duplex issue?
  4. Any POE issue?
  5. Any routing or interface or Qos configuration issue for VOIP VLAN?
