Fault in FC-HBA Configuration?

Here is the output for a qlogic FC2214 FC-HBA running with SLES9-x86_64:

QLogic PCI to Fibre Channel Host Adapter for QLA2340:
Firmware version 3.03.18 IPX, Driver version 8.01.03-p4-fo

Whats the meaning of the "Commands retried with dropped frame(s) = 160" entry?
Is this a fault or just informational?

Many thanks in advance.

Do you have a real problem rather than what you see here?

I suggest to check the SAN switch logs?
