Issue description:
On the interface of switch, we find have the discard packets, it is like below.
<HUAWEI> display interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1

Issue analysis:
We can use the command: reset counters interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1
<HUAWEI> reset counters interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1
And then check the interface counters again, if we observe the counter of discard packets is growing, We can basically judge that it is due to insufficient bandwidth or burst traffic in the network.
Solution description:
We need to expand the bandwidth.
We can create eth-trunk interface bind two or more physical interfaces. This post was last edited by l00188222 at 2012-06-05 10:56.
