packet loss alert

Anyone have any insigh tinto what the of "performance task" "Interface In/Outbound Packet Loss Rate"  is measuring? I seem to be getting a number of these Performance Multilevel Alerts on some interfaces, but when I check at the switch there are no drops or other errors logged on the interface

OID 1.3.6.1.4.1.25506.4.1.2.2.0.8

It's a nuisance more than anything, but still curious

Re: packet loss alert

Hello Neil,

The Interface In/Outbound Packet Loss Rate is referring to the ifInDiscards/ifOutDiscards:

1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.13.x and 1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.19.x

I think you are familiar with discards - this is a sort-of hidden counter on the switch, and seeing some discards on an interface is nothing abnormal. Switches will discard some packets (like drops due to ACL filtering or many other reasons) during normal operation.

Best regards,
Justin
