Aruba VSF High Port Counters

Hi,

i configure a VSF on 2 HP Aruba Switches.

It works fine but the interface counter  increases permanently extremely.

   member 1
      link 1 1/A1
   member 2
      link 1 2/A1

port-speed 40g

                                                               Flow Bcast
  Port         Total Bytes    Total Frames   Errors Rx Drops Tx  Ctrl Limit
  ------------ -------------- -------------- --------- --------- ---- -----
1/A1         1,549,676,185  1,629,998,889  0         0         off  0

2/A1         900,798,200    1,619,989,198  0         0         off  0

 

5 seconds later

Port         Total Bytes    Total Frames   Errors Rx Drops Tx  Ctrl Limit
  ------------ -------------- -------------- --------- --------- ---- -----
  1/A1         2,447,304,020  1,644,021,925  0         0         off  0

  2/A1         1,798,332,633  1,634,010,828  0         0         off  0

Is that normal?

1 GByte in 5 seconds??

The other interfaces are blank

I didn't find anything in the HP notes about that.

Re: Aruba VSF High Port Counters

You mentioned VSF on Aruba.

Can you post outputs of these (Sanitized = MAC Addresses and Serial Numbers, if any...removed) CLI Commands:

  • show vsf link detail
  • show vsf link utilization
  • show vsf
  • show vsf detail
  • show vsf topology
  • show vsf topology detail

Thanks.

Re: Aruba VSF High Port Counters

Well, a transmission (and reception) rate of 2% considering a single 40000 Mbps (40 Gbps) link - your VSF Port link - means 800 Mbps (100 MBps)...not so much considering how much fat is the VSF pipe between VSF Nodes...the point is now: what is causing such amount of traffic between your two VSF Nodes? ...maybe it's due to an host only connected to VSF 1 that is continuously talking to another host connected only to VSF 2...
