Sun Nov 18, 2012 12:45 pm

Hi all.
I print statistics of my border router and the public interface show:
                  tx-rx-64:      2 930 367 221     2 923 865 566
              tx-rx-65-127:      2 854 994 070     2 786 167 450
             tx-rx-128-255:        769 349 832       744 770 264
             tx-rx-256-511:        500 528 170       488 348 651
            tx-rx-512-1023:        240 967 037       237 799 381
           tx-rx-1024-1518:      3 760 533 889     3 755 320 103
 
I can see an huge number of packets of small size (<127).
Is the normal behavior of the network or is a symptom of a problem?

thanks

Why do you doubt that? Lots of things fit in small packages.. DNS requests, HTTP GET requests, VOIP packets...
