Hi!

 

These errors might be there for a long time. You need to reset the counters and check how fast they grow. Use portstatsclear on a port of interest and check back in an hour with portstatsshow or porterrshow. If you see counters growing, you have to worry.

Re: porterrshow

enc_out = encoding errors outside of frames.

 

http://community.brocade.com/servlet/JiveServlet/download/5581-1453/portErrShow.pdf

 

has some more details.

 

"Statisically, enc_out errors on their own imply a cable/connector problem. Enc_out

errors and crc_err together imply GBIC/SFP problem"
