high etherStatsDropEvents on 5500G link

Hello,

 

we've got some stranges etherStatsDropEvents ( which might affect users) on a gigabit link between a 5500G-EI and a 8800 :

 

8800(G2/1/4) <--Gigabit link over a duplex monomode optic link--> 5500G(G1/0/28)

It doesn't seem to come the 5500 himself, because it doesn't happen on anothers interfaces :

This problem seems to triggers a snmp trap ( cf IMC screenshot)

 

 

Can someone tell me what can provide these etherStatsDropEvents and how to resolve ?
