We are seeing an issue with RX Drops between (2) x86 systems. We have 2 of these routers connected via a direct cat5 cable (less than 1 meter) negotiated at 1GB FDX port speeds.
The RX Drop counters of the interfaces connecting the (2) routers are increasing on both routers. There are no TX or RX errors, only Drops. Anyone have ideas as to what would cause RX Drops on these 2 routers?
I am having the same issue.
2 x86 systems,
CPU load is low ( i have disabled all Mangle rules to test)
there are no Queues.
one x86 is our BGP router, connecting to another x86 thats normally our QOS (currently just has IP addresses as i have disabled everything in trial to fix issue) and the third is our x86 LNS.
I am not noticing any RX drops on the interfaces that connect to our Cisco Switch. Only those that connect between x86 routers.
there are 0 errors
the drops don't 'count up slowly' just randomly every few hours i get a 'total drop of all traffic' and get large numbers added to my RX drops on that interface, meanwhile its basically a total network outage for 3-4 seconds.
