what does mean System FCS error frames?

I have a C2960G that is some issue.

This problem is ping success DA(GOOGLE),also it doesnt  open same web site for port 0/1 ~ 0/4.

other port successed ping and web site that just changed port.

what does reason this problem?

I think 0/1 ~0/4 port is same ASIC that is fault.

Let me know what is problem?

what does mean System FCS error frames?


Excessive errors for certain counters usually indicate a problem. When       you operate at half-duplex setting, some data link errors incrementing in Frame       Check Sequence (FCS), alignment, runts, and collision counters are normal.       Generally, a one percent ratio of errors to total traffic is acceptable for       half-duplex connections. If the ratio of errors to input packets is greater       than two or three percent, performance degradation can be noticed.

In half-duplex environments, it is possible for both the switch and the       connected device to sense the wire and transmit at exactly the same time and       result in a collision. Collisions can cause runts, FCS, and alignment errors       due to the frame not being completely copied to the wire, which results in       fragmented frames.

When you operate at full-duplex, errors in FCS, Cyclic Redundancy       Checks (CRC), alignment, and runt counters must be minimal. If the link       operates at full-duplex, the collision counter is not active. If the FCS, CRC,       alignment, or runt counters increment, check for a duplex mismatch. Duplex       mismatch is a situation where the switch operates at full-duplex and the       connected device operates at half-duplex, or vice versa. The results of a       duplex mismatch are extremely slow performance, intermittent connectivity, and       loss of connection. Other possible causes of data link errors at full-duplex       are bad cables, faulty switch ports, or NIC software/hardware issues. See the       Common Port and Interface Problems section of       this document for more information.

what does mean System FCS error frames?

Look at the Transmit column.  You have "11" Late collisions.  You have "3" 1 collision frames.

Look at the Receive column. 

Yes, your Systems FCS is very high.

Run a TDR test from your 2960G.

now it just dont use port before i used to be usage with port 0/1 -0/4

I replace the HW and than it will be ok.

at the time its problems, if you have it, you can be replacememt it.

thank you for answering.
